There is no intention that either 2-byte or 3-byte encodings work, and 
nowhere was it documented that they did.  So it would *not* be a bug for 
something undocumented to stop working, but then neither was it 

We do need a more detailed bug report (and the FAQ asks for one, the first 
time).  If perchance you are referring to the fact that print() now 
interprets some characters in octal, this is a bug in some versions of 
Windows and has been worked around in the current R-patched available from 
CRAN.  Please try that before responding.

Otherwise we will need you to debug this using the sources and provide a 
patch against the current R-patched sources, as none of the R developers 
have a Korean-language version of Windows.
