I wouldn't be surprised if the issue is libiconv. The current version
for 1.7 was built against cygwin-1.7.0-37, which was long before

NEW: wcstok

NEW: mbsnrtowcs, open_wmemstream, reallocf, wcsnlen,
wcsnrtombs, wcstod, wcstof, wcstoimax, wcstoumax

NEW: wprintf, fwprintf, swprintf, vwprintf, vfwprintf, vswprintf
wctomb/mbtowc improvements
wctomb bugfixes.
New setlocale implementation honors POSIX locale strings.

NEW: wscanf, fwscanf, swscanf, vwscanf, vfwscanf, vswscanf, wcscasecmp,
wcsncasecmp, wcsftime.

NEW: wcsdup.
bugfix: mbstowcs, wcsftime, swprintf/vswprintf

bugfix: mbtowc
massive new codepage/charset support via LC_* and setlocale

So, I'm thinking maybe rebuilding libiconv against 1.7.0-46 might help,
since the one released back in November wouldn't have seen any of that
stuff during ./configure, and may have disabled "something".

Also, I was planning to update our dist to the newly-released
libiconv-1.13 anyway -- which might help, too.  But, before I did that,
I wanted to finish the last few of my packages that need "initial"
updating to 1.7/latest.  The remaining ones: cvs, rxvt-unicode, checkx,
and xerces-c, so I'm *almost* there. It's only taken six months...
