I'm using Win10 and typically the icon created by setup which starts

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
You put "cygwin terminal" in the mail subject; so you're in fact using a "cygwin console".


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.
Tested with Window 7 Ultimate, starting cmd.exe, then Cygwin.bat. This does not reproduce the issue for me.
