I looked into this problem, and found this is caused by incorrect
return value of iswprint().

A simple test case is attached.
The expected result of the test case is: 111111
However, in the latest snapshot, result is: 111000

I think Thomas can easily fix this.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <locale.h>
#include <wchar.h>
#include <wctype.h>

int main()
	wchar_t w[] = L"ABC���";
	wchar_t *p;

	setlocale(LC_ALL, "ja_JP.UTF-8");
	for (p=w; *p; p++) {
		printf("%d", iswprint(*p));
	return 0;
