[Vm-dev] [OpenSmalltalk/opensmalltalk-vm] Serious character-encoding bug (#449)

For a long time, the Squeak image expected a MacRoman encoding from the Windows VM. It then has been converting MacRoman to Squeak. This, however, was not necessary anymore in more recent VMs that directly passed through UTF32 from Windows to Squeak. 

Now, the recent commit "Multilingual-nice.248" did then adapt the Squeak side to correctly choose the UTF32 conversion to make it work again. So, in Squeak Trunk #19258, the bug does not occur anymore with the recent VMs.

I suppose that VMs before 201911160620 will not work anymore with the recent Trunk on Windows. Not sure. Anyway, the VM 201911282316 is still a valid candidate for the Squeak 5.3 release. Yay. 😄
