> When Sun Java stores values using Windows Preferences, the values are converted before
they are saved in the registry.
> And of course the reverse conversion is done when retrieving values.
> However, Harmony fails to do the conversions, and therefore cannot always correctly read
preferences set up by a Sun JVM.
> It looks like Harmony encodes/decodes names correctly (though I've not tested this).
> The failing values in my test are Windows paths; looking at the actual registry shows
that backslashes and capital letters are encoded by Sun Java but not decoded by Harmony.
