I have realized where the problem was. PyUnicode_FromUnicode()
"helpfully" interns single-character  Unicode objects in the Latin-1
range.  So when TransformDecimal replaces whitespace with ' ', it may
garble cached strings.  I think this optimization is a left-over from
the time when unicode did not have interning, but it is never a good
idea to change immutable objects in-place after creation, so I'll fix
this problem in my code.
