You haven't mentioned what your bug is, however Windows doesn't really use
Unicode (UCS-4, a 32 bit character set), nor does it use 16 bit unicode
(UCS-2). It uses UTF-16, in which there are a couple of ranges of characters
used to create two-word sequences to represent a larger chunk of UCS-4. Your
code doesn't deal with that.
