1. Use reliable connection.
2. Gracefully close all started applications and shell instead of
pressing Alt-F4 or 'x' icon in PuTTY.
3. If #1 is not an option, then either
3.a. use 'screen' from the beginning, reconnect to your session
after connection drop, and follow #2; or
3.b. reconnect to the server after connection drop, and kill all
previously started applications.
Note that I've never tried (3.a) in Cygwin.
