Possibly, just possibly, this should be disregarded as 
numToCodePoint(4000) yields
a Bengali character that behave is the way I described; but if one tries 
to insert numToCodePoint(93)
or numToCodePoint(2356) everything works as previously.

As one of my godfathers (a Bengali) would say "Bengalis always cause 
problems."
