This is now confirmed, it's in nt_crypt_all_x86_64(). If you download my 
UTF-8 patch (version 4 or later) from the wiki and un-comment the 8-bit 
self tests in lines 54 *and* 244-245 in NT_fmt.c you can test this for 

make linux-x86-64 --> you will have the bug, failing self-test with --utf8

make generic --> it will work fine

(BTW, shouldn't I be able to "make linux-x86-any" (or sse or mmx) on a 
64-bit host, for testing? Do I just miss something in my binutils?)
