Browsing through the command history in cygwin's cmd.exe access to the
Windows shell doesn't work properly in mintty.  Instead of showing
previous commands, the up and down keys just move a cursor on the
screen.  Using up/down works fine with bash on mintty and cmd.exe
works fine in the standard Windows console Cygwin terminal.
