It appears as though gcc's \x handling in wide strings is broken,
at least in However \x does work in a character
constant, eg L'\x4e00', and if the L is omitted from the string
constant, the compiler does issue a warning that the escape
sequence is out of range.

Looks like they intended for it to work, but something got
botched in the implementation. :(
