The man page says that bash builtin printf supports the standard printf(1)
formats. But it seems that \uHHHH is not working:

$ /usr/bin/printf '\u212b\n'
Å
$ printf '\u212b\n'
\u212b

Am I doing something wrong here?

The `\u' format string escape is not standard.  I will consider it for a
future enhancement.
