    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: Supplementary unicode codepoints in     *
    *                      Strings held by SIB JMS messages are    *
    *                      not correctly transmitted.              *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    Strings transmitted in SIB JMS messages were being encoded and
    decoded from transmission inconsistently, resulting in any
    codepoint >= Character.MIN_SUPPLEMENTARY_CODE_POINT being
    corrupted in the act of transmission.
    The fix corrects this encode/decode inconsistency, allowing
    correct transmission of these codepoints.
