Using the Windows Console:

64 LANG = en_US.UTF-8, LC_ALL =
=> LANG = en_US.UTF-8
64-@@ cygcheck -sv | awk '$1 ~ /^(libreadline.|cygwin|"cygwin1.dll")$/'
                  "cygwin1.dll" v0.0 ts=2017-01-31 15:28
cygwin                                  2.7.0-0.1                    OK
libreadline7                            7.0.1-1                      OK

64-@@ chcp.com <==== changed from 437 to 65001 for testing only
Active code page: 65001

64-@@ % <==== canNOT paste �¶ (if libreadline is enabled)
bash: fg: %: no such job

64-@@ bash --noediting <==== switch off libreadline
=> LANG = en_US.UTF-8
64-@@ %�¶ <==== I can paste �¶ when libreadline has been switched off
bash: fg: %�¶: no such job

libreadline must be the culprit ...

Henri
