I recently reported a bug with char32_t instantiations in one of the
extension codecvt headers (big5 IIRC) and would not be surprised if the
same problem applies to char16_t and to <codecvt>. But it was easy to
workaround - just instantiate with uint32_t (which works OK) and then
before calls cast the char32_t pointers to uint32_t pointers. A hack, but I
was just using it in some test code.
