I've seen this with more people than just you, but I never could work out
what was happening.  Saxon has this problem a lot too, but usually has
other high-bit characters that cause the message to get held up for
moderation and I then strip them out manually.

I probably need to fix the moderation software to remove nul characters,
but haven't had any time to look at it.
