Then I don't see much of the cause for such a behavior from Cygwin side.
May be other software interfering. Do you have a particularly zealous "antivirus", pehaps?

We're using "Symantec Endpoint Protection", Version 14.

I could see an anti-virus program preventing the execution of a Cygwin window, but not the closing of one.
