With some difficulty, I managed to reproduce the failure situation under
ktrace, so that I could diff with the successful case:

>  u8-istream-test CALL  read(0,0x640670,0x1000)
> -u8-istream-test GIO   fd 0 read 13 bytes
> -0x0000 6500 6e00 7400 7200 e900 6500 0a

> -u8-istream-test RET   read 13/0xd
> +u8-istream-test RET   read 14/0xe

The size of the read from fd 0 (stdin) was different;  the last null
byte got truncated.  I don't know why that is.  The read is assumed to
be complete and it doesn't attempt to read again.

The effect is it will later decide the string is not valid UTF-16LE, so
treats it as CP1252, and doesn't properly convert it.

It seems logical this bug only happened for Little Endian encodings
(strings with Big Endian encoding will not end with a null byte).
