      Try changing it as follows:

      if has('multi_byte') " if not compiled-in, we can't use it
      if &enc !~? '^u' " if already Unicode, no need to change
      if &tenc == "" " don't clobber keyboard locale
      let &tenc = &enc
      set enc=utf-8
      " define the heuristics to identify 'fileencoding'
      " of existing files
      set fencs=ucs-bom,utf-8,default,latin1
      " the following sets defaults for newly created files
      " comment, uncomment, or change at will
      setglobal bomb
      setglobal fenc=utf8
      if has('gui') " non-GUI-enabled versions don't know about 'guifont'
      if has('gui_gtk2') " GTK2 but not GTK1
      set gfn=Courier\ New\ 12
      elseif has('gui_photon') " Photon
      set gfn=Courier\ New:s12
      elseif has('gui_kde') " kvim (obsolete)
      set gfn=Courier\ New/12/-1/5/50/0/0/0/1/0
      elseif has('x11') " other X11 (including GTK1)
      set gfn=-*-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-120-*-*-m-*-*
      else " other (including Windows)
      set gfn=Courier_New:h12:cDEFAULT

      I don't know. Maybe Cygwin starts in UTF-8, which would mean that Vim
      <=> Cygwin happens in UTF-8 without misunderstanding even if
      'termencoding' (q.v.) is left empty.

      Hm, I'm not sure.

      Best regards,
      Down with categorical imperative!
