Under Cygwin, wide UTF-8 chars (more than one byte long) are displayed as "??" in input.

In fact, Cygwin does not send all bytes of UTF-8 char at same time, so WeeChat displays "?" for each malformed UTF-8 byte.

Solution: keep a partial UTF-8 char in memory, and then complete it later when remaining bytes are read.

Problem reported by weirdo on #weechat.
