 correctly. Variable str is not the correct Unicode string correspoding to
 my chinese encoding. 
 When I type locale in the console. All the locale enviroment variable is

+MCS uses the 28591 code page by default (ISO-Latin-1), I am not sure
+it is a great idea to change the default to be environment dependant.
+You might want to try instead:
+mcs -codepage:936 source.cs
+Please tell me if that fixes your problem.
+Am setting the bug to `NEEDINFO', please update the bug status with
+any further information.
