What version of Cygwin 1.7 are you using?  The change to newlib, which
allows to specify C.UTF-8 as locale is from 2009-09-29, so Cygwin
1.7.0-62 from 2009-10-03 allows to specify this locale.

The change which makes C.UTF-8 Cygwin's default locale is from
2009-10-09, so this change is only in Cygwin from CVS, or in developer
snapshots from past that date.
