I was wondering that. How do we add tests for internal C functions?

This situation can only be caused by calling doprnt with format_end
set to some point inside a multibyte character (it's a pointer). I
suppose that's the caller's fault and it's probably not up to doprnt
to "fix" it. You would get the same effect by passing doprnt a format
string that ends "inside" a multibyte char.

This is slightly complicated by the fact that I think we want to
truncate the output on a character boundary if we run out of output
buffer, but if the format string is already truncated inside a
multibyte character then we want to output everything that's there.
Something like:

          int charlen = BYTES_BY_CHAR_HEAD (fmtchar);
          src = fmt0;

          /* If the format string ends in the middle of a multibyte
             character we don't want to skip over the null byte.  */
          for (srclen = 1 ; *(src + srclen) != 0 && srclen < charlen ; 

          fmt = src + srclen;

As for the old code, as far as I can see it implicitly assumed the
format string was always unibyte and do didn't do anything special if
the buffer ran out in the middle of a multibyte character, but you can
see that it took special care not to truncate a multibyte character in
the other data, e.g. a curved quote or a non-format string (doit1).
