sorry about that, i should have mentioned the locale originally.  while i 
wasnt running C, i was running non-UTF8 (en_US to be exact).  when i switch 
to en_US.UTF8, the proposed example does work.

perhaps the test suite should be run twice ... once with LC_ALL set to C, and 
then a second time with a UTF8 locale (if one is available) ... first try 
like en_US.UTF8 and then en_GB.UTF8 and then run `locale -a` and look for 
utf8 in the list ...
