If you use hexadecimal notation then the reader will force the string to
multibyte, with octal notation it is forced to unibyte.  The process of
converting a unibyte string to multibyte will change characters in the
range 0x80..0x9f.  Maybe the bool vector reader should just force the
string back to unibyte.
