Hello Simon,

Thanks for the pointer.  As far as I can tell, you do agree that
nl_langinfo(CODESET) passed as an argument to iconv_open should work, at
least internally on each platform.  Is that right?  If so, I don't see
anything we can do about this in libidn (except to fix the segmentation
fault above, but that is already done).  Or is there a better way to
find out what string to pass to iconv_open for the locale charset than
using nl_langinfo(CODESET)?  I have been worried about nl_langinfo not
being thread safe, and thus inappropriate for use in a library; it is a
minor problem that I haven't been able to solve.  If there is a better
approach than nl_langinfo, libidn could use it.

Can I safely deploy libidn 1.13 on Solaris or do I need to wait on
an enhanced libiconv before doing so? I didn't have the problem with
the 1.9 version, so is it best to deploy an older version on Solaris

Kind regards
