It looks like fixing this may have caused another issue. Example test:

With cmd.exe, you can type Alt 234 and it produces
GREEK CAPITAL LETTER OMEGA U+03A9. However with Cygwin via Cygwin.bat it yields
nothing. Non ASCII characters can be read from scripts, but they cannot be
entered interactively.

They cannot be pasted either; pasting some words will remove all non ASCII

I believe this to be a recent issue, if memory serves this did work before, and
should given that cmd.exe handles it fine.
