What font is current at the time?
One thing that MAY be the issue is that IDE's tend to use the
current font to determine what code page/encoding to convert into when
returning information. If the font is one that is "Unicode", it may then
fall back to the default language unless told otherwise. See what happens
if you have switch fonts.

We should see if there is some way to get the Unicode directly
rather than all the conversion...
