Oooh ... the problem, effectively, is that the ts_locale.c functions are
expecting to get back UTF32 but what they'll actually get on Windows is
UTF16. So if the given character is outside the BMP range, char2wchar
needs to produce a surrogate pair, which there's not room for given that
the output buffer can only hold 1 wchar_t plus trailing null.
Then the other problem is that the Windows-Unicode code path in char2wchar
just fails for an undersized output buffer, which you would not expect
from its documentation. And it fails with a misleading error message,
I'll see what I can do about this --- thanks for the report!
