I went back and checked. I had misinterpreted what was happening.
The cygwin terminfo description and the cygwin termcap both seem to
work. I was fooled by a version of less that had a built in fallback
termcap for cygwin which doesn't work properly. When I removed the
/etc/termcap file, I had thought that less was using the ncurses
terminfo file, but it was using a faulty internal termcap. Sorry for
the confusion and misinformation. Lynx with ncurses under cygwin has
been working properly; it was my memory that wasn't.
