The &#65536; character will be passed through in its four byte UTF-8 
form (which is 0xf4 0x80 0x80 0x80 I think); are you storing the 
property values in the database in a UTF-8-safe field?  Problems with 
this test are typically that some character conversion happens under 
your feet or simply that the data store isn't 8-bit-safe.
