is it just me, or does cygwin 1.7 return a utf8 encoded strings for
filenames and the like?
I wonder, because rxvt and xterm show two strange characters for each
german umlaut when I use "ls -la" or the like.
Well, I don't think that rxvt will ever work, because it doesn't support
unicode. And there doesn't seems to be a non-X11 version of rxvt-unicode.
But I would expect, that xterm works. But it doesn't.
The default-encoding, that cygwin returns, seems not to be utf8.
I have didn't experiment with setting the LANG variable yet.
I'm curious what going on and how the upcoming cygwin 1.7 will be like.
Is there some information about it on the net?
