Sounds like cygwin's base-files should be updated to guard
cygwin-specific .profile contents to only occur when uname says it is
running on cygwin. I'm sure the maintainer would love patches...

You can guard that with something as simple as:
case $(uname) in
CYGWIN*) export LANG=$(locale -uU) ;;
(hmm, the moment you also share the .profile with a Solaris box, you'd
have to use `` instead of $(), but that's another story)
