The transcoding code is the most sensitive to platform differences.   
The code path for transcoding on WIndows is very different from on  
Linux, for example.  To really be able to track down anything related  
to transcoding, it is essential to know the platform, compiler and  
build options.

Also, you are reporting something regarding a particular debugger's  
display rendering of a particular STL libraries std::string class.   
None of that is specific to log4cxx and is very specific to the  
debugger and STL library in use.  It may be that src is perfectly  
usable, just that it is not being displayed the way you'd like.

Did you run the unit test suite?  TimeBasedRollingTest fails  
occasionally, but all the other tests should pass.  If there is a  
problem with encoding and decoding on your platform, it would likely  
come up in the unit tests and it would be a lot easier to diagnose and  

However, since you don't have any non-ASCII characters in your source  
string, decoding should be as simple as copying character by character  
into the destination.  What happens when you single step through the
