That means you are using gnu-win32 grep. Some older (2.5.4) and newer
(2.6.3) cygwin greps won't work.

Sorry, I missed that in your original report.

Did you try adding an entry to `process-coding-system-alist'?

The problem is not here. I can change the encoding of the command string (which is passed to external cygwin apps) using coding-system-for-write. It works (converted correctly utf-8->cp1257, cp1251, etc), but it doesn't help, because of the way the args (command line) are passed/transcoded through the winapi (CreateProcessA) and cygwin layer. This bug is related to bug#6705 (there are detailed description of what's happening)
