[h-e-w] SIGINT on Windows

Hi guys

After an upgrade to Windows 7 Ctrl-C Ctrl-C has stopped working for me within shells i.e. it doesn't kill the running process. Instead it just prints C-c C-c to the buffer.

I've tried:

·         various versions of emacs

·         shell, eshell, term, ansi-term

·         calling cygwin bash as opposed to the normal Windows cmd.exe

·         adding the CYGWIN=tty env variable


But no beans. I simply cannot kill my long running processes.

Any ideas for this as it's killing my productivity!
