Would you mind going to proper mailing lists.

Basically you need to know how to fix Cygwin under Windows95.
Second you must be using an ancient Cygwin to even see out of environment.
this, lesstif has nothing to do with C Locale.  That is a pure Xlib stuff.
Fourth take it to cygwin-xfree mailing list, then I will answer it, please.
I prefer not answer direct mails concerning opensource software or I would
get flooded with mails from 5 different mailing lists and would sit here
whole day
answering e-mails.
Fith check mail archives first eeven before asking.  Most of the time
you would find an answer and do not even have to post.

Last thanks for cooperation and send your help to proper mailing lists.
