Odd apparent cursor movement in mintty (+emacs)

In some file^H^H^H^Hbuffer in emacs(-nox), with mintty maximised, cursor
movement appears incorrect - moving the cursor forward[1] (emacs'
forward-char via C-f / cursor right key) incorrectly positions the
visible cursor 'n' characters forward. The insertion position is
correct, however - it only moves one character forward.

emacsclient 23.2, GNU Emacs 23.2.1, if it makes any difference.

[1] backward, too, but up and down seem unaffected
