I'm shifting this to the TAO users list… (using my registered account this time)

On behalf of the ATCD development community, thanks!

Thank you again for reporting this defect. There is a macro we use, ACE_TEXT_ALWAYS_CHAR(). In context the fix is:
return this->repo_->tc_factory ()->create_alias_tc (id.c_str (),
ACE_TEXT_ALWAYS_CHAR (tc.in ()));

There are several ACE_TEXT* macros used to handle char/wchar_t conversions. Note that these are not proper translators so use of character sets that extend beyond 0xFF (0x7F?) will yield interesting results. :-)
