Can you log the HTTP headers for this transmission? It would be  
interesting to see if there's a "; charset=UTF-8" appended to the  
Content-Type value you assign. Also, if you save the 3045 bytes and  
decode as if it was UTF-8, do you get a clean decode and any wide  
chars in the resulting string?
