[Bug localedata/2413] New: gencat treats second 0x5c byte _JP.sjis sequence as continuation

conanhc at gmail dot com
In the simple ja_JP.sjis message file

$ /bin/echo -e "1 \224\\" >/tmp/tt

$ hdump /tmp/tt                  
00000000 31 20 94 5C 0A                                  1 .\.

gencat gives an error

$ LANG=ja_JP.sjis gencat --new /tmp/tt.out /tmp/tt
/tmp/tt:1: invalid character: message ignored

This input file contains a single message numbered 1 containing the SJIS
character represented by the double byte sequence 0x94 0x5C

The 0x5C seems to be treated as an ASCII backslash which is a continutation
char in gencat

You cannot use SJIS as a locale, it is not ASCII-safe.
