Re: Cygwin fails to utilize Unicode replacement character

Using this file:

   $ printf '\353\n' > alfa.txt

   $ iconv -f CP1252 alfa.txt
   ë

You get this result with Linux:

   $ cat alfa.txt
   �

Where "cat" properly outputs Unicode 'REPLACEMENT CHARACTER' (U+FFFD). However
with Cygwin you get this:

   $ cat alfa.txt
   ▒

Where "cat" outputs Unicode Character 'MEDIUM SHADE' (U+2592).
Which terminals are used and what's the output of `locale` and `cat --version` in both cases?
