Which of course, is not the case :-> The problem does not appear to be
with the code.

This suggests that the compiler has deduced wchar_t as being the
appropriate type for the stream when it should be char. This relies on
rather straightforward full template specialisation, which would seem
odd to get wrong.

The problem is related to wstring and wchar_t, but is not related to
compiler/library support for them.
