It should be pointed out that rxvt can be used in place of CMD.EXE, 
which is what is started by the Cygwin icon created by setup.

If you want to do that, here is my cygwin.bat:

@echo off

chdir C:\cygwin\bin

rxvt -sl 10000 -sr +sk -si -sw -fg Green -bg Black -e /bin/bash --login -i

Obviously the path needs to be altered to whatever you have for your 
cygwin installation.
I find this to be much more usable than using bash inside cmd.exe - 
things actually work.
