FWIW, I've been using a home-built mintty-0.9b2 from googlecode all day 
with no problems (loving extended mouse mode!). I swear I just checked 
setup.exe two hours ago, but I'll check again and switch to official one 
when I get a chance.

FYI, it looks like you can enable extended mouse mode manually (echo -ne 
'\e[?1005h'), and it persists across normal mouse mode sessions. This is 
handy because
(a) emacs-23 can use it out of the box and
(b) it works around gnu screen intercepting and ignoring the escape sequence
