It's your own fault when you use the broken glibc. File a bug-report
and wait for them to fix it.
Displaying the INVALID-character is imho the best compromise. The
graphics don't glitch out and we don't blindly assume something.

As soon as glibc gets its shit together, it will work. Strict
error-checking and blindly accepting return values and not
interpreting them in some weird context is often the best way
to go.
Don't think about it, just catch it well.
