Pasting windows path in cygwin produces truncated result #970

ConEmu build: 161203 [64] {Stable}
OS version: Windows 7 x64
Used shell version: Cygwin bash

Problem description

Pasting a path from explorer to cygwin bash does not work. The resulting path appears to be truncated in some way.

It would be really nice to be able to turn off the path auto-conversion completely. I would have no problem if I had to paste a windows path in quotation marks, which worked fine a few versions previous.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Copy path from explorer C:\tmp
  2. Paste into terminal (via Ctrl-V or Shift-Ins)

Actual results

Terminal shows "/cygdr"

Expected results

Terminal shows either C:\tmp, or /cygdrive/c/tmp

Other examples (path -> result):

C:\tmp\abc -> /cygdrive/
C:\Temp\incoming -> /cygdrive/c/Temp
C:\Temp\incoming\ -> /cygdrive/c/Temp/
C:\Tools\cygwin\home\g.hodgson\local -> /cygdrive/c/Tools/cygwin/home/g.hodg
