That is quite possible.  However, I was already out of my depth ages ago 
with this stuff!  Although some will accuse Australian's of having their 
own language, we do get by on ASCII characters ;-)

The changes I posted here aren't actually the changes I have applied - 
the "mbcs" and "utf-8" constants have been moved into variables - thus, 
it will be trivial to change from mbcs to any other encoding.

However, I have no idea how to track this down further, and no idea how 
significant the differences you posted are!
