It turns out Brett was using an ucs4 build of Python, and the
bug is related to that. So I've lowered the priority and changed
the title. If someone sees the bug in a normal Python build or
someone has good reason to find the bug critical even if it only
affects ucs4 builds: please raise the priority again. But this
won't be a trivial bug to fix (basically I think I'm using the
pointers straight out of the PyUnicode objects and passing them
to Apple routines, so fixing it would require allocating temporary
buffers and all that jazz).
