EVALUATION The problem here is that we are using the file flavormap.properties created for Solaris OS and it states that strings in native buffers are stored in iso8859-1 format which is not true on Mac OS. The solution is to make our own set of property files for Mac OS X and to modify makefiles to use them instead of Solaris ones.
