Hello,

In example, the program runs as expected if any of the following situations:
1. I run it in another directory (ie C:\Users\suser\tmp)
2. I run it in a classic Windows terminal (but no Greek characters)
3. I've compiled the program with cl (MS VC++)

It's the third test I made (compile with MS VC++) that made me wonder
if I face some Cygwin bug. Clearly, it's a question, not a bug report.

Thank you,
Ev. Drikos
