This looks similar to the issue reported in http://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/?50964
although it's not clear why, for
you, it started suddenly and in other software as well. With the report
above almost 2 years old it isn't likely be some Windows update that
broke mingw libraries.
Maybe trying what is suggested there (explicitely using English instead
of System default) would help for GNUbg. On the other hand, I don't see
anything special when using System default on a Windows 10 version 1709
in French language.
Could you start the CLI, run this sequance of commands :
set lang C
set lang system
set lang C
and report the output of the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th commands ?
