    Cygwin: pty: Fix 'Bad address' error when running 'cmd.exe /c dir'
    - If the command executed is 'cmd.exe /c [...]', runpath in spawn.cc
      will be NULL. In this case, is_console_app(runpath) check causes
      access violation. This case also the command executed is obviously
      console app., therefore, treat it as console app to fix this issue.
