Thank you.  I'll add those two above.  Besides of the fixes Craig
proposed, I also found that I'm ignoring reentrancy at two or three
points in the code.  I'll fix that as well.  I'll update the patch and
send it again next week.

Again my other question from my original mail in this thread.

Would it generally be an appreciated idea to add correctly working
support for all supported singlebyte charsets to the singlebyte ctype
functions, like isalpha, ispunct, etc?  I'm willing to do that.  In
theory I would just add new ctype arrays and resetting the __ctype_ptr
to the new array in setlocale().
