Hmmm - I get 7.1.0 (on sage).

And that might just be the problem with Unicode handling .... I think it 
improved in LC v 8 upwards,  but that's an area I know nothing about.

You can, I believe, ask on-rev support to upgrade you to a modern 
version for each domain (or install your own copy of LC Server.

I've been tempted to submit an on-rev *bug* report that they are still 
using an obsolete, no-longer-supported version of LC Server. I really 
don't understand why they don't upgrade the default to at least 8.x 
STABLE. Perhaps preferably 9.x STABLE - if they really believe 9.x has a 
STABLE release.
