OK, small correction: generic_emit_char was called with 'encoding'
set to "UTF-16LE", which makes sense, given that it is what the
windows (actually cygwin) -tdep file explicitly sets it to.
I probably got confused in my notes with what was happening with
GDB 7.5, or maybe just got confused period.
Other than that, I think that the rest remains accurate, so it seem

... would be the way to go, assuming that we're not waiting for Keith's
patches. A small request: If Keith's patch is still some ways off, I'd
love to have a fix put in while we wait. This bug, and a few other
charset-related ones, have been nagging at me for a while, and with
more important tasks, traveling and, hum, holidays, I haven't had
the time to follow up as quickly as I'd like...
