Ctrl-C issue for Windows program

I run locally-developed Windows console program via mintty/cygwin.
I've noticed a problem with Ctrl-C in mintty 1.0.3 not terminating my
app.  The problem came about with my switching to "CYGWIN_NT-5.1 pc
1.7.10(0.259/5/3) 2012-02-05 12:36 i686 Cygwin".  Ctrl-C just makes
the window hang.  /bin/kill -f cannot kill the task either.  I can
kill my Windows program via task manager.

mintty 1.0.3 and Ctrl-C on "CYGWIN_NT-5.2 server 1.7.9(0.237/5/3)
2011-03-29 10:10 i686 Cygwin" works fine.  On 1.7.10 or "CYGWIN_NT-5.2
server 1.7.13(0.260/5/3) 2012-04-05 12:43 i686 Cygwin" Ctrl-C does
not.  In addition, rxvt has the same change in Ctrl-C behavior with
the introduction of 1.7.10.

Can the functionality of Ctrl-C please be restored?
