Nothing but wait.  The reason that tar doesn't print the characters
while find does is probably related to find callng setlocale and
tar doesn't.  I hope to get this fixed in the next couple of days.
We're discussing the entire locale stuff on the cygwin-developers

My current locally patched DLL doesn't have that problem anymore,
so we're hopefully on the right way.
