This is what I hink is happening to your test (Sven can probably
explain it better):

Since your locale is UTF8, CP_ACPand CP_UTF8 refer to the same
codepage, therefor the contents of S1 in either case is correct.

Without the codepage identifiier on Windows, after the assignement S1
contains a UTF8 byte-sequence, but the compiler treats it as CP_ACP,
and therefor on my system as codepage 1252, and now the string has a
completely different meaning.
