  i've  come  across  Kazuhiro's  patch from 2000-07-04 dealing with
AnsIToOem  conversion. What do you y=think about conditionalizing this
code?  something  like  CYGWIN=oem_apis  or  CYGWIN=oem  ?  In russian
windows   oem   codepage   is  866, while ansi is 1251. People who had
scripts written before cygwin have switched to ansi now got unreadable
messages.  if  you think that adding yet another option to CYGWIN env.
variable won't be too bad, i'll submit the patch.

btw,  what's  the reason of calling OemToCharA in read_sd (like it was
before   Kazuhiro's   patch)?   Does   GetFileSecurity   not   honor

ps.  yeah, i know i've been a bit slow to notice this change :) that's
because i don't use much cyrillic.
