Excellent stuff.

Ahhhh... now is this related to the other "bug" we were talking about
before I left -- i.e. the one where valid UTF-8 sequences outside the BMP
cause the conversion to fail ? If so then I am halfway to a solution
for this which involves re-writing the conversion code to convert it
into UTF-16, which is the behaviour of OS X. I havent submitted a patch yet
as its not finished (am trying to make it match OSX as closely as possible)
but will that fix this problem ?
