Uh oh. Works fine for me of course, so here's a load of questions:

- What versions of mintty, Cygwin, and Windows were you using?
- Are any 3rd party window/taskbar/tray management utilities involved?
- Did you confirm that the mintty process had died, or could the
window just have been hidden?
- How many mintty windows were open at the time? Were any of them minimised?
- Can you reproduce the problem?

If you want a workaround, you can disable the Ctrl[+Shift]+Tab
shortcuts on the Keys page of the options, in which case they'll send
keycodes to the application instead. (Btw, those can be mapped to
switch session in GNU screen.)
