I've just been informed that the reason for so many of
the UNICODE strings is that characters repeat after
the 256th character, and continue to loop as you
progress upwards in numbers. Maybe I'm understanding
or explaining that poorly, but I think you get the
gist. Perhaps this explains some of the other
characters that seem strange, but I don't know.

Still doesn't explain the problem with the patched
system, but I am still looking under some rocks about
that one to figure out what is happening there.
