fyi this does not guarantee a flush.

...endl does explictly call flush though. This is per the standard...

however......the destruction of this (wide) stream should also flush. So, 
something wrong with the current (wide) clean up code.

I'll look into it: thanks.

Do you happen to have example code that uses UTF8 conversions? If so, can 
you send it to me?
