I don't know which layout it expects, if any. But I use several AIX
When I logon on console, some of them have Czech layout and some of them
US layout. But from cygwin the behaviour is the same
- US layout with -kb parameter
- US layout without -kb parameter and NumLock off
- Czech-with-AltGr layout without -kb and NumLock on

May be...
