OTOH, in my testing this only occurs for DejaVu Sans Mono.  I installed
Liberation Mono and Noto Mono as well and the above problem never occurs
with them.  Weird.  I'm about to let this slip as a font bug.
as you prob know ive been testing on W7. i found a W10 virtual machine here:


but it requires 4GB RAM just for the image. since i only have 4GB total on my
system the image wont load into virtualbox.

i can see about upgrading my system - but i wont bother if you are intent on
wiping your hands of this anyway

let me know - thanks
I created new developer snapshots for testing.  Please give the latest from https://cygwin.com/snapshots/ a try.
Consolas: invalid encoding: hollow box, unknown glyph: boxed question mark
Lucida Console: invalid encoding: medium shade, unknown glyph: hollow box
so far it's fine, but:
Raster Fonts: output of invalid encoding hangs cygwin...

This will be my last action for the next 4 weeks though.  I'll be back in October.
I'll try to check the code.
Looks like s/ANSI_CHARSET/DEFAULT_CHARSET/ does the trick
Without this change, lf.lfFaceName is "T" when entering the do...while loop.
What's the purpose of this nested loop (do...while and EnumFontFamilies) anyway?
