This may be a duplicate of another longstanding bug report that Mr. Drepper has
marked as WONTFIX despite it being obviously non-conformant. He seems to
believe, for whatever reason, that avoiding writing out incomplete multibyte
sequences in incorrect programs that use %.NNs formats haphazardly with
multibyte strings is more important than not breaking correct programs that are
using %.NNs with strings not intended to be interpreted as multibyte characters
in the current locale. Neither C nor POSIX makes any requirement that strings
used with the %s format specifier be valid multibyte character sequences in the
current locale; glibc is simply wrong on this issue.
