Bug#122224: The function mbstowcs() returns -1 if the string contains special latin characters
> Package: mbstowcs
> When I call the function mbstowcs(), if the second parameter is a string wi=
> th a special latin character ('=D1', '=F1', '=E1'...) it returns -1.
> I tried to change the LC_CTYPE environment variable to many values and the =

> e is no problem, it returns > 0.
> I call this function to know the length of the string, the first parameter =

> I also have tested it on other platforms such as WIN32, Solaris, Digital, H=
> P and I never got the return -1.

mbstowcs was already vanished from woody. If you still have problems,
please provide me a sample code. Could I close this bug?
