That's very strange.

It works for n < 61410, fails for n >= 61410

Well, if I try with n = 61409 (that works), then it works even with n
>= 61410.
But, as an example, with n = 614100, it fails again...

No.
Only cmd.exe, started with /k "chcp.com 1252" 
(but is is the same without it).


What a mess!


P.S.
Do you have installed SP1 or SP2 on Windows XP?
