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
conhost.

i said from the beginning that i wasnt using mintty - so im not sure why you
are testing with mintty

also you dont start conhost - its started automatically when you launch any
shell.

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
/usr/share/terminfo/63/cygwin.

all i can say to this is that you arent using windows 7, so perhaps the newer
version of conhost has fixed the issue - at this point we would need another
windows 7 user to confirm the issue - further tests with win 10 wont be helpful.
