wprintf has no UNICODE support...

Again a story about UNICODE:
The unicode-version of printf (wprintf) will not allow unicode characters > 255!!!

The problem is that internally (w)printf uses some buffered output.
And this bufferd output only knowns MBCS… and in the default locale (“C”) there is
no conversion for characters > 255 to MBCS… therefor wprintf has no unicode support.

This is also a known bug:
