I have tried your code, however, it does not work as expected.
It seems that __set_charset_from_locale() is not called.
cygheap->locale.term_code_page is always 0.
I have added following lines into setup_locale() to make sure
to call __set_charset_from_locale() for a test,
setlocale (LC_ALL, "");
__set_charset_from_locale (__get_global_locale()->categories[LC_CTYPE], charset);
get_ttyp ()->term_code_page = cygheap->locale.term_code_page;
however, term_code_page is set to 932 if locale is ja_JP.UTF-8.
In this case term_code_page should be CP_UTF8 (65001).
The code page retrieved in __set_charset_from_locale() is not
based on "UTF-8" but "ja_JP".
Let me consider a while.
