this sounds like you dont have the right CYGWIN environment variable set.
Unless CYGWIN environment variable includes tty - ctrl-c and ctrl-x will not
function in nano, and a few other programs.

this somewhat strange bug has been reported on nano mailing list a few
times, i'm hoping that it will get figured out in an upcoming version -
although the nano developers seem to think that it might be a bug with
Gareth - nano maintainer - whos going to check aspell-en just as soon as he
can stay awake for a few hours...
