Does the attached patch work for you? Anyone see problems with it? The
functional change is at:

-			if (c < 128+totype) {
+			if (c < 128+totype || c==legacy_map(tomap, c)) {

The rest is just refactoring to put the shared logic in a new static
function legacy_map rather than repeating it two (and now three, after
the fix) times. Further simplification via refactoring is actually
possible but I tried to keep this patch short and easy to review.
