[bug-gawk] Weird printf '%c' behaviour under non-C locale

A Debian user reported a bug [1] about gawk's printf '%c' behaviour,
which has changed in 4.0. It is no longer possible to write single
bytes when using a multibyte locale.

>From what I understand the new behaviour is in line POSIX, but I
believe there should still be a way to write single bytes (other than
changing the locale of the entire program).

I am interested in your opinion on this.
