I tested on Windows 2012 R2 (8.1 equivalent) and I can confirm Steven's findings.  Tried with an older installation and then once more after a complete update (`uname -a`s below).

I ran Cygwin from a clean command window (`cmd /d`) using `chcp ...` and `bin\bash -li`.  The ö's don't appear in bash with CP 65001. Other combinations (bash with CP 437, cmd with either CP) allow ö's to appear.

Try the legacy console (conhost v1), if you haven't already.  Maybe it will show the same behavior even on Windows 10.
