No joy. ConEmu introduces additional hurdles in fact because it
intercepts all the useful keys related to selecting, copying, and
pasting text. It does that because it wants to provide an integration
with the Windows clipboard, which is not useful to me. When I disable
those key bindings (in ConEmu, to allow those keys to be passed through
to textadept) the behaviour is the same as with cmd.exe or MinTTY.

Thanks for the suggestion.
