That may be so, yet there may be an issue here for someone packaging
Cygwin programs for use as native Windows applications.

That is to say, there could potentially be something here that the Cygnal
project could address:


Cygnal is an ultra-light fork of the Cygwin DLL that is intended for users, who run Cygwin programs out of the Windows environment directly, after building them in Cygwin.

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

Well, that seems like a miracle, because in Cygnal, I don't remember doing anything
to the processing of the command line or initial locale.

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

Could be some Cygwin issue caused by newer commit that isn't picked up in Cygnal;
i.e "red herring".
