on my german Windows 2000 installation I have a running XWIN and cygwin-
installation. When I make a SSH-connection with Secure-CRT to a
Linux-SSH-Server, I can forwart X11 to my local X-Server Running on
xfree under cygwin! That works fine!

But for example, I open in the ssh-bash an "xterm &" and the xterm opens on
my localy xfree/cygwin, I have a different language in the xterm-bash.

I cannot user the "äöü" etc.

When I make this with a booted linux on my side instead of windows and make
a ssh and the x11-forwarding to my local linux-xfree, I have the german
umlauts etc.

How Do I get this running under cygwin?
