Hmm, at least we're both running WinXP SP3, so maybe that has
something to do with it. Maybe WinXP somehow has less language / char
encoding / ... support installed by default, which causes this to
fail.

And now the good news: I was able to make the test succeed by enabling
"28593 (ISO 8859-3 Latin 3)" in the "Code page conversion tables" of
the OS'es "Regional and Language Options" (see Control Panel |
Regional and Language Options | Advanced).

So in summary: this is a local failure, which can be fixed by enabling
the right "Code page conversion table" in Windows. Nothing serious to
worry about.

Though it's still not nice that the absence of this setting causes the
test to fail, especially because it wasn't enabled by default (at
least on my system). Maybe someone on this list knows how to change
the test to make it more tolerant in this regard?
