I'm using Win10 and typically the icon created by setup which starts
mintty directly as:

C:\cygwin64\bin\mintty.exe -i /Cygwin-Terminal.ico -

I started conhost from that session and then executed `bash -il' within

So just for grins I went to the Windows Explorer and started with the
cygwin.bat file and performed your test again using the .bash_history
with no issues.  This time the TERM=cygwin which comes from

cyg Simple
