The strings come from parsing ID3 tags in MP3 files.  Perhaps these 
are zero terminated?
I'll convert one to a byte array and look at it in that form to see 
what I can see.

Still, even if the source strings are zero terminated, the serializer 
should not
allow 0x0 characters onto the wire.  muy no goodo!
