switching to any other than English keyboard layout is not handled correctly anymore on the prompt at minimum

I try to find files like "find . -name
<unexpected_numbers_instead_of_non-Latin_characters_appear_here>". Good
that you asked about the shell as the story gets even more interesting, in
a peculiar way:
If I start cygwin then echo $SHELL returns /bin/bash but input is not
handled correctly as described. If I spawn child bash -- then it handles
Russian and German correctly but no Hebrew and Arabic and the same applies
to vim.
Yes, it worked before.
