Status changed from New to Closed

Submit #2920: _ascii_wcsnrtombs, _ascii_mbsnrtowcs, and _none_wcsnrtombs neglect to set src on EILSEQ error

* Author: RockinRoel

DragonFlyBSD's libc also suffers from this bug in FreeBSD and Mac OS X: https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=209907

I noticed that when using wcsrtombs, if a character is encountered that can not be converted, it sets errno to EILSEQ and returns (size_t)-1. However *src still points to the original character, even though it should point to the character after the one that conversion stopped at. I've attached a test program that reproduces the issue.

The expected output is:
inptr - in: 7

The actual output is:
inptr - in: 0

I've included the patch that fixes it for the none and ascii locale (it's fine for other locales).
