It seems that deparse() came across some non-printable characters. Such 
characters would be replaced by \U or \u escapes. This is implemented 
using wide characters in R, but on that platform __STDC_ISO_10646__ is 
not defined, so wchar_t has unknown representation (not known to be 
Unicode), hence the warning.
