Emacs Quit under Cygwin

I've never used Emacs under Cygwin. I've always installed the Windows version. However, today I'm in a hurry, EmacsW32 site is down, and I decided to use Cygwin. Unfortunately, some of the keys like C-x C-c (quit) are wonky. But Newbie, Emacs won't quit - gnu.emacs.help | Google Groups describes a simple modification to the Cygwin bash shell batch script that makes everything good to go.

M-x save-buffer-kill-emacs

will also get you out of emacs. Personally I would rather see my default emacs start up when I type emacs in cygwin.
