2017. The class side #initializeLatin1MapAndEncodings in TextConveter was
changed to assume that all TextConverter instances respond to #encode:,
but only ByteTextConveters do, and UTF16TextConveter is not a
The error raised is ignored during the execution of the method, because
errors are only expected to be raised at that point when the character has
no representation in the target encoding, so latin1Encodings will be

the class side tables are not initialized properly, or the encoding was
changed (MacRoman), but the tables were not updated. Those can be fixed
with an appropriate package post script, but UTF16TextConveter should be
fixed first, as that also uses the class side tables, even though it
