          Issue ID: 21815
           Summary: std.format: invalid UTF-character throws with width
                    but not without
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

char[1] c;
writefln!"%s"(c[]);
writefln!"%5s"(c[]);

The first writefln prints 0xff-character, while the second one throws an
UFTException: "Attempted to decode past the end of a string (at index 1)".

IMHO, the second one should not throw, but just write some (four?) spaces and a
0xff-character.
