Depends on the Windows version.  I looked in the version that is used
on XP, and will check with newer versions later.  (I think I did check
in Studio 2010 sources at the time, but maybe I misremember.)

In any case, since with my patches we will never write UTF-8 via
cputs, this is a non-issue, I think.

I don't know.  The Windows console internals are notoriously
under-documented, so many times I need to accept factoids without
really understanding them.

Again, I don't think this is an issue anymore, as we both agree that
cputs should not be used for UTF encoded text.
