I am not familiar with this issue, but GCC's C++ wide character support
on MinGW is currently defunct for a few relatively silly reasons. In
particular, GCC's configure is overzealous in turning off wide character
support when miscellaneous Unixisms are not present. The primary reason
it doesn't work is that no one has taken the time to get it working.
With any luck, this will be fixed sometime soon.
