Summary:  GSFormat with %C, regression between 1.3.2 and 1.10.0

Original Submission:  Hi all,

GSFormat causes a crash when used with format "%C".

This is something that used to work with GNUstep 1.3.2 and crashes with GNUstep 
1.10.0 using MinGW. It works on OSX.

Using this code (appends an unichar 'A' to a mutable string):

On Mac OS X:

cougar:/tmp fred$ cat AppendUnichar.m
#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>

int main()
    NSAutoreleasePool *thePool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];
    NSMutableString *theString = [NSMutableString string];

    [theString appendFormat:@"%C", (unichar)0x41];

    NSLog( @"address@hidden", theString );

    [thePool release];

    return 0;

cougar:/tmp fred$ cc -o AppendUnichar -framework Cocoa AppendUnichar.m
cougar:/tmp fred$ ./AppendUnichar
2004-10-26 18:37:35.982 AppendUnichar[766] [A]

cougar:/tmp fred$

On GNUstep 1.3.2 on mingw, with gcc 3.2:

address@hidden /c/tmp/AppendUnichar
$ shared_obj/ix86/mingw32/gnu-gnu-gnu/AppendUnichar.exe
2004-10-26 18:44:03.988 AppendUnichar.exe[2020] [A]

address@hidden /c/tmp/AppendUnichar

On GNUstep 1.10.0:

AppendUnichar.e caused an Access Violation at location 6de58669 in
module gnustep-base_d.dll Reading from location ffffffff.

    NSMutableString *theString = [NSMutableString string];

    NSLog( @"address@hidden", theString );

00401258  AppendUnichar.exe:00401258

Of course, there are plenty of workarounds, but I definitely don't understand 
what is going on there in GSFormat.m

Thanks for all the great work you all do on GNUstep,
