well, format makes that decision based on

typedef basic_format<wchar_t > wformat;

Are you saying those macros are defined, in boost/config, according to

it's quite strange that this line works with basic char, and not
maybe wchar_t really is a strange faked type on your platform, that
causes all kinds of trouble ?

well, I had just made a few minor modifications into CVS to make format
more robust versus locale being here or not, so it certainly might have
solved some of the issues you faced.
