I'm at a loss. None of the platforms I've tried now (msvc, debian gcc)
fail with trunk.

I can unfortunately not remember which platform/release it was I tested
on, as none of the machines I currently have access to have any trace of
bcp testing.

I couldn't test mingw, as my installation of msysgit fails to compile
fileview.cpp as it tries to call a non-existant
std::ifstream(wchar_t const*).

I guess that it's mentally closeable, unless the luser or I manage to
coax something into breaking again.

Sorry for the FUD.
