The bug here would probably be related to the long-running issue of
userParameters.  We store this as UTF8, but it isn't really a string.
We need to add an exception to our handling routines here.  Replication
with windows is likely to be particularly problematic. 

This hits the other use of this parameter (terminal server settings)
much more severely. 

What we need is to ensure we have (perhaps only for this attribute) a
perfect forward and reverse encode of not-really-UTF8 to ->
not-really-UTF16 (perhaps not-really-UCS2), without regard for (with
perfect transformation of) otherwise illegal sequences.
