Bug#324075: libc6: putwchar() returns WEOF without setting errno to EILSEQ

Package: libc6
Version: 2.3.5-4
Severity: normal

The following program shows that putwchar() can return WEOF with
errno = 0, though it should have set it to EILSEQ (see the ISO C
standard, and it is explicitly say in the putwchar(3) man page).
It should be run with "LC_CTYPE=tr_TR.UTF-8"; in this case, it

putwchar-test: errno = 29

putwchar-test: errno = 0 (EILSEQ = 84)

Note: the fact that fwide() is called before setlocale() is
intentional, to make the error appear.

#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <locale.h>
#include <wchar.h>
#include <wctype.h>
#include <errno.h>

void my_putwchar (wchar_t wc)
  wint_t ret;

  ret = putwchar (wc);
  if (ret == wc)

  putc ('\n', stderr);
  if (ret != WEOF)
    fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: internal error in putwchar\n");
  fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: errno = %d (EILSEQ = %d)\n",
           errno, EILSEQ);
  exit (EXIT_FAILURE);

int main (void)
  wint_t wc;

  errno = 0;

  if (fwide (stdout, 1) <= 0)
      fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: can't set stdout's orientation\n");
      exit (EXIT_FAILURE);

  if (errno)
      fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: errno = %d\n", errno);
      errno = 0;

  if (setlocale (LC_ALL, "") == NULL)
      fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: can't set locales\n");
      exit (EXIT_FAILURE);

  wc = towlower (L'I');
  if (wc == WEOF)
      fprintf (stderr, "putwchar-test: btowc returned WEOF\n");
      exit (EXIT_FAILURE);
  my_putwchar (wc);
  my_putwchar (L'\n');

  return 0;
