> This test uses L_tmpnam to determine the length of a buffer used to store a filename
string. Unfortunately, L_tmpnam is intended for use with tmpnam(), but the buffer is written
to with std::sprintf(). When I run the test, the allocated buffer is 46 bytes, and the sprintf()
call writes 58 bytes [this will vary based on user name and other variables]. Perhaps the
buffer should be made larger, or some other method should be used to fill the buffer. Perhaps
this would work.

>     char srcfname [_PATH_MAX]; // [L_tmpnam + 32];
>     std::sprintf (srcfname, "%s" SLASH "LC_TIME.src", locale_root);
