FWIW, I was able to reproduce your problem on the bash shell in a command
window (on Win2k).  What's interesting, though, is that if the output were
pasted to a regular Command prompt window, it pastes the accented
characters sans the accents.  When pasting into any Cygwin app run from
that prompt, however, the accented characters disappear altogether.  This
may have something to do with the way fhandler_console processes input,
but I don't know enough about that code to even start looking.

One more interesting (though probably unrelated) thing is that the Win2k
Command window (with QuickEdit off) allows one to press the right mouse
button to get a context menu (basically the "Edit" submenu of the main
window menu).  However, when any Cygwin app is run (say, "cat"), the right
button stops working (though it does work as "paste" in QuickEdit mode).
As I said, this is probably unrelated, but might provide a clue, so I
thought it was worth mentioning.
P.S. BTW, no offense, I'm just wondering, why a Portuguese subject line on
a mostly English-speaking list?
