I'm a newbie and korean. A few days ago, I installed cygwin and cygwin-xfree
package. And then, I changed locale 'LANG=ko' for korean. Simply, I executed
LANG=ko xterm -e vim

I executed vim to write a document in xterm. When I tried to type any key in
vim, xterm was closed with 'Segmentation fault (core dumped)' message. Even if
I would listen music with xmms. Xmms was closed with 'Segmentation fault' message.

I tested other language environment. below japanese.
LANG=ja xterm -e vim

It works fine.

I don't know what is problem. Is there anybody that saw like this?

I suspect newlib doesn't support that locale. Here's what I read on

This is a minimal implementation, supporting only the required "C" value for locale; strings representing other locales are not honored unless MB_CAPABLE is defined in which case three new extensions are allowed for LC_CTYPE or LC_MESSAGES only: "C-JIS", "C-EUCJP", "C-SJIS", or "C-ISO-8859-1". ("" is also accepted; it represents the default locale for an implementation, here equivalent to "C".)
