I have searched the archive on this with complicated results.
First, I am using latest version of cygwin. I normally use rxvt. But
after having this issue with it, and finding information that mintty
does not have the issue, I started using mintty. My first attempt to
fix the issue in rxvt was successful (export LANG=C). However, at some
point it failed. LANG is the same, but I again was getting special
characters where a hyphen (and quotes and other punctuation) is suppose
to be. That is when I started using mintty. It worked right off no
problems. However *now* it is doing the same. I have tried setting
LANG and LC_ALL to en_US.utf8 but nothing is helping.
