In the patch file you attached, the doc refers to x:...: rather than
y, whereas the code uses 'y'.  I do find this to be a pretty highly
specialized operation, though, and I'm not sure I like the idea of
using up more of our limited number of remaining single-character flag
letters for it.

Did you make sure that the LANG and or LC_* etc. environment variables
are set correctly in the test script?  Also this test should probably
be appended to D07multibyte rather than have its own new file.  (That
would ensure that LANG etc. are properly set, too.)  I don't find a
test of the (m) flag anywhere in Test/*.ztst either, for that matter
-- hard to decide if this belongs in D04 or D07 but I tend to think
the latter.
