#4658: (boost::format("%u") % (unsigned char)2).str(); error result

Comment (by James E. King, III):

 #9360 also details the following, which I verified:

     unsigned char c = 0x55;
     s = (boost::format("0x%02X") % c).str();
     BOOST_CHECK_EQUAL(std::string("0x55"), s);

 Running 1 test case...
 format_test3.cpp(134): error: in "test_main_caller(_argc,_argv_)": check
 std::string("0x55") == s has failed [0x55 != 0x0U]

 If you change the type of c to an unsigned short, or unsigned int, then
 the check passes, so it is specific to char handling, just as the original
 report here.
