           Summary: Registry: invalid UTF-8 sequence
           Product: D
           Version: 1.020
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: keystuffs netscape.net

I get this error when I use the function value_EXPAND_SZ:

This is caused because the value returned is 2 characters too long. 

The function value_EXPAND_SZ use the function ExpandEnvironmentStringsA. In the
documentation found here:
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms724265.aspx, this function return
the string length, plus terminating null character, plus one.

This means that the variable "newValue" returned by value_EXPAND_SZ contains 2
extra characters.

To resolve the bug, I changed the last line by:
  return newValue[0 .. newValue.length - 2];
