If you do a 'describe-key' for C-x C-c you will see that the key combination is mapped to 'C-x C-g'. This might help: export CYGWIN="tty"
(note from jimv at iwaynet dot net: when I try this, for some reason stty gets set to '-echo' as I leave emacs. So, I can't see what I type at the cygwin prompt after I exit emacs, and trying to fix it with 'stty echo' fails. Instead of using 'export' in the cygwin environment, I just edited the batch file I use to launch the cygwin bask from my desktop: Add 'set CYGWIN=tty' right before the call to bash. This fixes everything for me.)
The following thread discusses the problem.
