      I don't know whether there is a general way of solving it.
      But, it has the memory of doing the check of Cygwin/Mingw32 in configure
      of bash-2.04.
      It may become a hint.

      Though my thought was silly, we seem to have a problem to think about still
      in relation to this.

      Many Japanese Unix users are using 'LANG=ja_JP.eucJP'.
      When those users do telnet to Cygwin, vim fixed on shift-jis is inconvenient.
      It thinks that the structure which the movement of vim changes how to
      indicate it to dynamically is necessary in accordance with LANG.

      Therefore, it may be dangerous that merge does my patch right now.
      I don't hit upon the good idea to solve this right now.
      Won't you ignore the patch until the better way of solving it is found?
