If you develop an application that calls the wcsxfrm function in the Standard C++ Library to transform a string that is based on locale-specific information, the result may return an incorrect size for the string.
This problem occurs because the function incorrectly returns the size of an array of bytes instead of the size of an array of wide characters. You may experience this problem if the locale is set to anything other than "C."
