1.7.14-2: bash not accepting "~" (tilde) from keyboard in Console (WIN7)

I have just installed Cygwin 1.17.14-2 using the setup.exe.
I use Console (portable; from Portableapp.Com) as my entry to bash. I
created an extra tab definition for Console, which starts cygwin.bat.
Works as expected, so far.
The odd thing is, if I want to use, eg cd ~, the tilde is not shown, but
the backtick "`" is.
I have tried this when calling cygwin.bat from Explorer, effectively
starting cygwin from cmd.exe, and then the "~" works as expected.
Does anyone else experience this ?
Does anyone have a solution for this ?
Thanks in advance.
