I have not seen you provide any output from the locale command, 
or any mention of your Windows regional settings.

Others may be unable to reproduce your problem because they don't have 
your Windows and your default settings, and most likely customized their 
systems. Some idea of what *your* "default" settings are would be helpful.

VM - VMware, KVM, QEMU, ... and edition/release?
VM config?
Does your VM product intercept and/or translate any keycodes?
Windows Home, Pro, Ultimate, Education, or Enterprise, Edition?, and Language?

Windows environment and where problems appear:
Windows 7, 10, or both; 32 bit, 64 bit, or both?
Service Packs, Updates, and patches installed?
Cygwin 32 or 64 bit or both?

Cygwin environment:
Packages installed and releases?
Environment variables?
Cygwin locale output?

To help with a problem, someone else has to be able to reproduce it.
To reproduce it, they need to be able to reproduce the environment 
that causes the problem, and shows the same symptoms you see.

Given suggestions are all posters 
can offer without more information.

If you find suggestions by other posters unhelpful, ignore them: 
your comments are only likely to discourage others from helping.

Without cygcheck -svr output attached, project volunteers are 
unlikely to be able to help:

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
