Thanks for the hint. I confirm that just substituting cygwin1.dll makes
the test working:

D:\cli> test "текст плюс.txt"
param 0 = test
param 1 = текст плюс.txt
File 'текст плюс.txt' was opened

I was not able to find any relevant difference in dcrt0.cc, but perhaps the
difference is in initial setting of locale (Cygnal initialization).

With best regards,
