See example.

Recode returns weird characters behind 2*strlen($string) in CP912..UTF-16 conversion (not only, also in UTF-8..CP912 and probably others).

phpinfo() says Recode Revision: 1.29.

Reproduce code:
recode("CP912..UTF-16", "Pouzite prohlizece");

Expected result:
"\0P\0o\0u\0z\0i\0t\0e\0 \0p\0r\0o\0h\0l\0i\0z\0e\0c\0e"

Actual result:
"\0P\0o\0u\0z\0i\0t\0e\0 \0p\0r\0o\0h\0l\0i\0z\0e\0c\0e?\1\0\0" or "\0P\0o\0u\0z\0i\0t\0e\0 \0p\0r\0o\0h\0l\0i\0z\0e\0c\0elong" or ...

What is the actual version number of recode you are using?
(That's not displayed on phpinfo) If you aren't using the latest version, upgrade it first and see what'll happen.

Please do not submit the same bug more than once. An existing
bug report already describes this very problem. Even if you feel
that your issue is somewhat different, the resolution is likely
to be the same. Because of this, we hope you add your comments
to the existing bug instead.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

I once checked another related bugreport too, it was a bug in librecode then too, and I remember upgrading it to the latest version which did not resolve the problem. I'm bogussing this, please add further comments to #17154.
