Sorry for asking stupid question. My knowledge of cygwin internals lacks.
However, I can see that for every mintty window (and bash) I get a
conhost process running. I assume that it is where the character
setting is stored for non-cygwin processes started from bash.
Again, it is my naive believe, that somewhere there maybe a convenient
place to call SetConsoleOutputCP with argument matching content of the
LANG environment variable.
