OK, I think that is an "overlong encoding" issue, where the UTF-8
would decode to a codepoint that should be represented by a shorter
sequence. The UTF-8 decoder that I used as a starting point for this
happily accepts such input.
There are probably other issues. For example, I don't think the "skip
pending" loop does the right thing when the buffer ends and the
pending bytes end at the same time. I wasn't expecting you to actually
try to use this code!
