Doesn't getgrgid() return the untranslated content of /etc/group?
Then the encoding of this file is relevant.

On cygwin, "mkgroup -l" is often (exclusively?) used to generate this
/etc/group, extracting the user definitions from the Windows settings.
Its source code
shows that it uses MBCS to encode strings.

Maybe we should start considering cygwin as a posix platform with win32
features; but I am not sure to like this idea.
