It's not working!

I think this only recently started working in some limited circumstances
(See, and there isn't enough version information in OP to determine if it should work or not :-)

I'm cc-ing the cygwin-xfree list, which is where I think fontconfig
questions belong. I can confirm that on my system, fc-list produces
strange output on the windows system fonts. I'm not sure if it's the
same problem you were reporting.

For example, I get the following in a mintty window under cygwin 1.7:

$ fc-list|grep -i micro
Microsoft Sans

These come out as (what I guess are) translations of "Normal" for me, so I guess, yes, wrong charset or encoding :-)

But is fc-list really supposed to show all these translations? I never saw that in older versions of fontconfig, which didn't include the Windows font directory.
