The description for scm_to_locale_stringbuf doesn't specify
what happens when the final multibyte character doesn't fit
in the provided string buffer.
size_t scm_to_locale_stringbuf (SCM str, char *buf, size_t max_len)
Say the locale is UTF-8, and the last position in BUF would be
the first byte of a two-byte character. The right thing is not
to copy that first byte of the character into the last position
of BUF, but, instead copy a '\0'. But there is no way to indicate
to the caller that the final '\0' is padding and not a true '\0'.
