This is a really old bug and there are so many changes in all the software around. Maybe we can ask the list if anybody still encounters this problem with the latest MSWindows builds.

I wouldn't be surprised if the problem has gone.

Have fun

Follow-up Comment #5, bug #33255 (project pspp):

> Recent incarnations of windows use UTF-16LE encoding not UTF-8.

I'm pretty sure that Windows has had the "W" versions of library functions,
that accept 16-bit Unicode encoding, practically forever.  Since Windows NT
3.x anyhow.

I've heard that there was a more recent change from using UCS-2 encoding
(which only supports characters in the Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane) to
UTF-16 encoding (which supports all Unicode characters via surrogate pairs).
But that wouldn't affect support for simple accented characters.

It might be worthwhile to bring this up on the gnulib mailing list (but Bruno,
who would really know, has been MIA for a year or more).
