Are you asking nonsensical questions for fun or did you not read my mail
closely, too?  I made the effort to reply to the OP with a detailed mail
explaining the issue.  I don't understand what this sniding reaction is

Cygwin tries hard to bridge the gap, but sometimes the gap is really

But thanks anyway for providing a solution to the problem by setting the
locale environment variables.  That might make a good FAQ entry, *iff*
somebody has the incentive to write one.
