LC9 and Windows Unicode bug?

I have found a bug in LC9.0.0 under Windows 8.1 that does not appear
under OSX (Mavericks).

When reading a UTF-8 file via Open File, Read From File, Close File (vs
say a Put URL ...into tVar; put textDecode(tVar,"UTF-8") into ...) I am
seeing a problem decoding Traditional Chinese and Japanese characters.

The bug report below has a ZIP file with a test stack and a UTF-8 file
to show the problem

Can any one on this list with a Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 system and
LC9.0.0 (stable) spare a few minutes and verify this bug for me?

Thank you in advance.
