It may be the difference in the character sets for each platform. If you
always develop on a Mac, use macToISO() on the character when the
platform is win32. LC usually does the conversion by itself, but if you
are populating the list from a custom property, the script has to do it.
If you aren't using a custom property then I'm not sure why it isn't
translating. Is the list coming from somewhere outside LC? If so,
textDecode() should work.
