Summary0000247: String.splice() has trouble removing non-ASCII characters
DescriptionThe code below should produce an output of "4 4 4 4 4", but instead we see "4 4 5 4 4". The five comes from removing the "ï" in "naïve". This character would be two bytes long in UTF-8, and I suppose only one is being accounted for when recalculating the length of the string. It actually looks fine when printed, but checking with the debugger reveals an extra zero byte at the end, as in "nave\x00".
Steps To ReproduceThe following code (with an appropriate #charset directive) should illustrate the problem:

    local str = 'naïve';

    for (local idx in 1..str.length)
        "<<str.splice(idx, 1).length>>\n";
