Indeed, it is working now.

Also, i have noticed that 'getent group' produces this line:

+Utilisateurs authentifiés:S-1-5-11:11:
 (with \303\251 meaning é, like under UTF-8)

while 'getent passwd' produces (among other lines):

+SERVICE RÉSEAU:*:20:20:,S-1-5-20:/:/sbin/nologin
  (with \311 meaning É, like under ISO-Latin)

This is with LC_CTYPE=fr_FR, no /etc/nsswitch.conf, /etc/passwd
and /etc/group with only one line each, domain member with currently no
network connected, under Cygwin 32bits 'Just Me', installed on top of
XP SP3 32bits [french only], with snapshot '20140508 19:51:25’,
and all packages up-to-date.

If i setenv LC_CTYPE C, or unsetenv LC_CTYPE, i also get UTF-8 for
'getent passwd' (ie for both).

What bothers me is that under LC_CTYPE=fr_FR (or fr_FR@euro), the
getent output is not consistent.
