Correct - if LC_ALL, LC_TIME, and LANG are all undefined, then you are in
the C.UTF-8 locale (cygwin's default), which, since it is not "C", is not
_the_ POSIX locale. Likewise, if LANG is en_US.UTF-8, but LC_ALL and
LC_TIME are unset, then you are in the en_US.UTF-8 locale, which is not
the POSIX locale.

Well, did you try setting LC_TIME=C? That would mean that LC_TIME is then
POSIX, overriding LANG; and as long as LC_ALL is unset, then that would
make the difference.
Or, you could use
TIME_STYLE='+%b %e %Y
%b %e %H:%M'
to force the POSIX interpretation regardless of locale.
Don't work too hard, make some time for fun as well!
