https://github.com/microsoft/microsoft-pdb/blob/master/include/cvinfo.h now shows

T_CHAR16         = 0x007a,   // 16-bit unicode char T_CHAR32         = 0x007b,   // 32-bit unicode char

@Rainer is this a D2 issue as well? If so how can we address it?

Yes, wchar looks ok, dchar is emitted as an uint, i.e. the character is not displayed in the debugger.

VS2019's C++ compiler emits T_CHAR32 for a char32_t variable and displays it correctly, using that with dmd works, too (after a small patch to mago, it shows it as wchar right now).

I guess it should be ok to switch to T_CHAR32, ignoring ancient debuggers that might not support it.

@Rainers thanks! I will assign this to you in the interim, feel free to reassign or better yet it would be great to look into it.
