That's not what I meant. I just don't like a solution which checks
for a specific situation which might change in future due to reasons
we don't know yet.

Would perhaps changing the general behaviour of Cygwin help?

For example when changing the runlevel on a Linux system is requested,
init(8) sends a SIGTERM to processes which aren't defined on the new
runlevel. Which is a similar situation, IMO. Perhaps changing Cygwin
from sending SIGHUP to sending SIGTERM makes any sense?
