[dev] [dvtm] Key Coding issues under Cygwin/Mintty

I'm running dvtm in Cygwin. Thank you for this really amazing piece of
software. I really enjoy it.

However, I have some problems regarding some key codes like CTRL-PgUp
or CTRL-End.

Running read -n 1 in plain mintty (bash) and pressing CTRL-PgUp results in

    ~ (master) $ read -n 1
==> ~ (master) $ [5;5~

Now, running the same in mintty using dvtm results in

    ~ (master) $ read -n 1
    '~ (master) $

So, dvtm is somehow mixing up the key codes under cygwin. Therefore
many CTRL-<special key>-combinations are not working in e. g. emacs
under dvtm/mintty/cygwin.

Any ideas?

Thank you!
