Well, if someone overwrites memory somewhere else, anything can occur...

This almighty cure is mainly for solving issues with wstringstream and
std::wcin/std::wcout, but who knows, it saved me a lot of trouble already.

I already have MSVC 2008 SP1. All Gecode scripts I'm running now use
UNICODE and no crashes occur (even with my FloatVars :-)). However, one
thing on my TODO list is investigating this: when I break the execution
somewhere and inspect the variables (like FloatVarImp or IntVarImp), the
'home' pointer inside all variables is set to '0xBAADF00D', which is a
little scary. You know, everything seems to work, but it's creepy. So
far I thought that maybe I miscompiled Gecode somehow...
