Since you were looking into the Cygwin console code lately, maybe you
could find out why `stty sane' doesn't reset the character set?

A couple of minutes ago I printed the bytes from an ISO image unfiltered
to the console.  Afterwards, the console was using the alternate
charset.  `stty sane' does not switch back to the default charset for
some reason.

If you have a bit of spare time, do you think you would like to have
a look?
