Well the mac carbon vm should take precomposed Unicode values  
(Normalization Form Canonical Composition)
and convert to canonically decomposed Unicode (Normalization Form  
Canonical Decomposition), and the other way for compatibility.

Windows and linux  work with Normalization Form Canonical  
Composition  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode_normalization,.

Hopefully it does that now.  Well of course reading all this again it  
points out NFS volumes are special...
