The ti/te in that entry makes less, emacs and other termcap using programs
switch buffers, and restore the screen on exit. If that bothers you, 
remove them, so that the termcap entry reads 


But for the shift up question, I don't understand why you would want to
use Emacs under in the cygwin window. There is an NT port of Emacs which 
gives you full access to the keyboard, including all modifier combinations.

If you want to log in to another host, an X server for NT also gives you
full access to the keyboard. Yes, you said you didn't want X, but you
do, really :-)

Terminal emulators are just that, they inherit the limitations of the
keyboard handling of the old terminals they emulate. Some probably
have fully programmable keyboard handling, and could be made to do what 
you want.
