Gee, thanks. No, I can't reproduce it.
Neither mintty nor Cygwin set LANG based on the Regional and Languages
section, nor does Windows itself. This means something else set it to
"SL". Is there any other Unixish software on your machine that might
be doing that? MS's "Services for Unix" perhaps? Emacs?
I understand you're no longer interested in this since you've solved
your problem, but it would nevertheless be good to know what happened
in case others hit this.
