I set up a virtual machine for testing LilyPond.

Yes, German should be CP-1252, but "chcp" says that cp-850 is active.
Which is not a problem by itself because cp-850 also supports some
special characters that need multiple bytes in UTF-8.

That was also my understanding, but "dir /x" already shows a short name
of "D15A~1.LY" for "ä.ly". Maybe I'm doing something wrong? (not used
Windows at that technical level for a few years now...)
