It would seem that there is something else going on to cause such a  
slowdown. I often load UTF-8 data into a Data Grid and then convert to  
UTF-16 and assign to the unicodeText property in FillInData. I haven't  
noticed any slowdown.

There is absolutely nothing else going on? If not can you send a  
sample stack to me off-list?
