parted-3.2 fails the same test when built on GNU Guix because the
"C.UTF-8" locale is not available (see below).  Changing
t0251-gpt-unicode.sh to use "en_US.UTF-8" fixes the problem.

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
mhw:~$ cat test.c
#include <locale.h>
#include <stdio.h>

main (int argc, char *argv[])
  char *desired_locale = argv[1];
  char *result = setlocale (LC_ALL, desired_locale);

  printf ("setlocale (LC_ALL, \"%s\") => ", desired_locale);
  if (result)
    printf ("\"%s\"\n", result);
    printf ("NULL\n");
  return 0;

mhw:~$ gcc -o test test.c
mhw:~$ ./test C.UTF-8
setlocale (LC_ALL, "C.UTF-8") => NULL
mhw:~$ ./test en_US.UTF-8
setlocale (LC_ALL, "en_US.UTF-8") => "en_US.UTF-8"
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

GNU Guix uses glibc-2.19 with almost no modifications, and includes the
default set of locales installed by "make localedata/install-locales".
See <http://hydra.gnu.org/job/gnu/master/glibc-2.19.x86_64-linux> for
build logs of our glibc.
