     .short    1200,2
     .long    -1,5
     .short    8984,8997,9003,8679,94,0

On win32 a quick test is hard since displaying unicode in the terminal 
is hard.

But a write for "widechar" is called:

    movl    U_$P$PROGRAM_$$_CHARS,%eax
     movw    (%eax),%cx
     movl    %ebx,%edx
     movl    $0,%eax
     call    fpc_write_text_widechar

so it should be ok then.
