I'm puzzled here - since TRANSLIT is less stringent, I would expect
that the check would be first made on the exact translation rather
than on the transliteration.   Any comments?

looking a little further, I see that the issue is that TRANSLIT is
a glibc extension, so it's tried first in case it works.  (google didn't
show much comment about whether it's more/less likely to succeed than the
plain POSIX version).
