You know, this is why I had so much fun writing these tests ;-). The
problem here is not the BOM but that the win32 API is limited to 16bit
characters. For characters outside the BMP it has to use surrogate
pairs [1] that's why the string has two characters.

We could split the test in two, one for BMP and the other for SMP and
then you would pass the BMP one and fail the SMP one which I believe
would be a fair assessment of the situation.

Ooops, possible VM bug. Could we use something like like:

1 isDispatcher

And for MessageSend there's GRDelayedSend which has the semantics we
need so this shouldn't be a problem.
