Maybe my terminology is wrong. But if you start mintty with no
.minttyrc and with LANG unset, mintty will set LANG=C.UTF-8. Trying to
then start the X server via startxwin.bat or startxwin.sh leads to the
error I reported. The error did not occur in X11R7.4.
There's been a lot of discussion in the various cygwin lists leading to
the decision that C.UTF-8 should be the default.
