Does anyone have any idea why when in Livecode 6.x if one

has this:

on mouseUp
    set the useUnicode to true
    set the unicodeText of the selectedText to numToChar(4000)
end mouseUp

it inserts the character between the chars where the insertion point is 
inwith a field,

but in Livecode 8.1.1


on mouseUp
    set the text of the selectedText to numToCodePoint(4000)
end mouseUp

it over-writes the char ontop of the existing text (and is bloody awful)?
