The problem is with the codeset, not with the locale itself.  Maybe
you are right, and the same problem exists on Posix hosts in some
corner cases, although I'm guessing that the widespread use of UTF-8
as the codeset should make it very rare.

I cannot test it: I have no access to a Windows system with a locale
where this problem raises its head.  But the change is very simple,
and it does TRT, so I think it should be applied.
