My base os is Japanese OEM Windows XP.
I've only used the standard c:\cygwin-packages directory, so have not had any problems. But, to confirm Gernot's report, I created a C:\japanese_dirname日本語名 directory and tried to download a package into it. It fails.
setup reports the following type of message:
No such file or directory: C:\japanese_dirname日本語名/http%3...../release-2/..bzip_filename
Although I think comments regarding "setup" may need to be sent to some setup mailing list??
