This is a limitation of the 'console subsystem', such as it is, in W9x (conagent, winoa386, etc), so even using the W95 version of cmd.exe doesn't help. You could possibly rewrite it - rather you than me. However, search the archives for references to rxvt which might give you what you want for Cygwin purposes.
