Sorry, this problem is no longer related to forms crashes.

The remaining problem is just that unctrl() returns a wrong string for
any characters that would be printable if interpreted as a wide

For example, in UTF-8, 0xff is not a valid character, but the Unicode
character U+00ff would be printable, so unctrl() returns "\377" instead
of the correct "~?".
