StyledText and Unicode

From the forum, by Mahe:
I'm using a DWT 3.4 on Windows with DMD 1.028.
I have a problem with the "StyledText?" - when I input a Unicode character like "²" or "ä", the program crashes with the message: Array index out of bounds

A sample program:

module Test;

import dwt.DWT;
import dwt.custom.StyledText;
import dwt.widgets.Display;
import dwt.widgets.Shell;
import dwt.widgets.Text;

import dwt.layout.FillLayout;

void main ()
    Display display = new Display;
    Shell shell = new Shell(display);

    shell.setLayout(new FillLayout());
    StyledText textField =  new StyledText( shell , DWT.BORDER | DWT.V_SCROLL );
    //Text textField = new Text( shell , DWT.BORDER | DWT.V_SCROLL );

    shell.setText = "Hello DWT World";;

    while (!shell.isDisposed)
        if (!display.readAndDispatch)


Is there a simple possibility to fix that (Like using wchar instead of char)?
