that is strange, can you clarify the conditions ?

it is usually adding features or trying to correct mistakes,
unfortunately it is almost impossible to test all NOT cygwin

So about your problem:

- under Mintty, what setting are you using as Keyboard Features ?

- Are you runnign SQLPLUS locally or remote ?

- Have you tested the "set CYGWIN=disable_pcon" before running
Cygwin ?

It will be nice to have a bit more of description of the problem
and of your Windows system
as mentioned on
please provide the cygcheck.out as attachment.
