I just ran into an encoding problem, with files now: openning a utf-8
file with a single lambda (\316\273) sometimes failes, and I traced this
to whether I start Emacs from Windows or from a cygwin shell.  In the
latter case, my shell has an explicit LANG setting and the result is
that Emacs opens that file fine, but in the first case, when Emacs is
started directly by windows, there is no LANG, and the utf-8 file is not
treated as such (looks like it opens it in latin-1).  I verified this
with "emacs -Q" too.
