I managed to trigger the bug on macos now. It turns out ISALNUM() returns TRUE
on macos and FALSE on Linux when given the char 'ΓΏ' (0xc3) as input.

Further, isalnum() is apparently depending on locale. Both my Linux and macos
machines use the en_US.UTF-8 locale. However, if I set "LANG=C" before I run
unit1307, the test case no longer fails!

I'm afraid there's but one conclusion to draw from this: we need to make and
use a custom isalnum() function for this. And to be really sure I figure we
should cover the other is*() macros as well as they may very well contain the
same sort of weaknesses.
