Saving stack and Chinese

Hello list,

I have a stack with one field. The field contains 3 Chinese  
characters. I put the characters into the field using

set the unicodeText of fld 1 to <some chinese unicode>

Each time when I save the stack, either by script or using the menu,  
the 3 characters change into 4 characters which don't look right.  
Sometimes, when I click in the message box and subsequently in the  
stack, the same happens. This looks like a focus problem. Did anyone  
observe similar behaviour?

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
