Text import broken

Sometime over the past 2 to 4 days text import has
been broken at least on Windows builds.

I have looked into the problem and I've found that
when the 8 bit characters are converted to the 16-bit
internal representation that the two bytes are swapped

Thus a space character is converted from
0x20 to 0x2000 instead of 0x0020.

Other importers are not affected. Text export may
the same problem.

Not sure about other platforms. Somebody please
