Right, and that's what strwinerror does. But looking at the windows-nat.c
code, indeed __USEWISE does not seem to imply UNICODE. Otherwise e.g.,
HANDLE hconsole = CreateFile ("CONOUT$", GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE,
FILE_SHARE_READ, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, 0);
wouldn't compile on cygwin. So I don't think we support building
windows-nat.c with UNICODE on currently (gdbserver/win32-low.c does
build that way though, since it builds on Windows CE too, and that
is always UNICODE), and char would be fine.
