Thomas, thanks for clearing that matter up.
I can confirm that "-w max" seems to work perfectly for me.
For reference, my complete procedure now is to first open the cygwin terminal from Start --> All Programs --> Cygwin --> Cygwin64 Terminal using Run As Administrator. Then execute this line in it:
chere -i -e "Bash (Cygwin) Here" -s bash -t mintty -o "-w max" -f
(The Run As Administrator and -f being needed to overwrite previous register entries.)
