When the source string that is supplied to the WideCharToMultiByte function contains a composite string for the last character, and the WC_COMPOSITECHECK flag is set, the composite character is not converted correctly.
Although WC_COMPOSITECHECK is specified, the destination string of the converted character is not null-terminated and the result does not contain the precomposed form of the string.
To work around this problem, increase the size of the buffer that WideCharToMultiByte returns by 1.
