Neither the strace, nor Task Manager show any tcsh process in my case.

There's a difference, though, when starting xterm via the `run -p xterm
-ls' shortcut.  With Cygwin -61, xterm just starts tcsh and it works,
with Cygwin -62, xterm tries to start the shell via luit, and that
fails.  If luit is missing on the system (renamed), xterm starts with
a message "Can't execvp /usr/bin/luit: No such file or directory", and
then starts tcsh just fine afterwards.

Since there's no difference otherwise, it's not clear to me why this
occurs.  In both cases the locale is set to the default "C" locale.
