I think you need to set an environment variable before starting Cygwin
-- "set CYGWIN=tty" might do it.

That is frustrating too ;-)

In general though, I've found Cygwin emacs to be too frustrating to use;
I instead use the native Win32 emacs, but with lots of Cygwin tools such
as bash, coreutils, and find.
