[Vm-dev] Help: weird bug in inspecting characters

I need help in tracing a bug (see attached picture) which triggered a 
MNU while trying to view a .cs file in FileTool. I traced the problem to 
peek on aStream returning a nil because a wrong character code was being 
returned in generated.

In the attached picture, aStream isBinary is false and the basicNext 
returns the correct $^ character which gets stored in character1 local 
var. But an inspector displays it as Character 128. In the same 
inspector window $^ shows the correct character code as 94.

This is on Squeak5.2alpha-64b-Linux-18127. What is happening here? Has 
anyone seen this type of behavior before?

Thanks in advance .. Subbu
