Ah, for some reason I thought you were using Guile 2.2.  That explains
the problem.

In Guile 2.0, string ports internally used the locale encoding by
default, which meant that any characters not supported by the locale
encoding would be munged.

Guile 2.2 changed the behavior of string ports to always use UTF-8
internally, which ensures that all valid Guile strings can pass through

So, this problem would almost certainly be fixed by updating to
Guile 2.2.
