I can't think of any reason for this, either. The place to start
looking is likely plt/src/mred/wxme/wx_{mpriv,media}.cxx.

Probably you already know this, but just in case someone on the list

MzScheme/MrEd/DrScheme version 300 will support Unicode, and v300 is
currently planned as the successor to v208.

The current development version toward v300 is v299.14, which is
available from CVS using the "v299" tag. MzScheme and MrEd v299
currently work fine; DrScheme is getting closer.
