I am currently on Windows XP SP3, x86 using cygwin bash shell (4.1.10(4)-release (i686-pc-cygwin)) and vim (7.3).  Michael's name displays properly, but not Роман's, although, as you can (hopefully) see, I can successfully copy his name and paste to e-mail.  And, as Tony Trinh mentioned, I can also copy it into plain old notepad (which isn't the normal editor I use), and notepad++ v5.9.8 (Unicode) displays it correctly as well.

Cygwin bash:
$ export | grep LANG
declare -x LANG="C.UTF-8"
$ grep "DXDragon" AUTHORS
????? ????????          <DXDragon [AT] yandex.ru>

Windows cmd:
C:\wireshark>type AUTHORS
Роман Донченко             <DXDragon [AT] yandex.ru>

Btw, I get the same results on a different PC running Windows 7 64.

I guess I can use notepad++ from now on for this type of editing, but if you've got any ideas as to how to get it work under cygwin, that would be appreciated.
