Found in my .emacs:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
      ;; system locale to use for formatting time values (e.g., timestamps in
      ;; Org mode files)
      (setq system-time-locale "C")
      ;; "en_US.utf8" did not work for the weekday in the agenda!

Now, the question is: why did it change on your machine? New Emacs, new Cygwin
(if on Windows)? See discussion
http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2011-09/msg00006.html on Cygwin (though I don't
know what to understand from it...).
