I found the first problem. When saving wchar_t, you were casing it to signed
short. When loading, you were loading it as unsigned short. Don't know why
this crashed tests, exactly, but when the stored value was negative, they

When I apply the attached patch, I get much nicer results. Again, see

However, I'm really suspicious of passing wchar_t as unsigned shorts.
wchar_t is 32 bits on some compilers, and gcc is one of them -- which means
you're loosing some data.

I'll probably look at test_delete test next. Any ideas how to debug it, or
what could go wrong?
