Check what font you're using for the window, and/or the console
codepage depending on how you're starting bash. The best test
I've found to date is to start a raw command / cmd shell and
make sure you can display the characters with dir, then run cygwin.bat
in that shell and ls -N al of a sudden worked. :) For me it was the
font... but if all you get is '?' it might be the codepage.

now the forces of openness have a powerful and
  unexpected new ally -
