That's good news. As I mentioned on irc, debugging string handling
buglets in Erlang code wasn't going to be easy :-)

Argh. The behaviour you describe has been seen before... in reverse!
The classical problem was pubside event propagation that let to the
opposite behaviour.

Ok. Following the breadcrumbe here, I get to
https://support.process-one.net/browse/EJAB-919 which has a nice patch
authored by the Geoff Cant, a fellow Catalyst-er. I can help w a
rebuild here.

I would also suggest getting the Sugar factor out of the way, testing
briefly w 3 laptops with OS 10.1.3. OS 10.1.3 is known to DTRT. The OS
11.x.y series has a number of collaboration regressions, and while I
don't think it hits this problem interoperating with OS 0.6, it's
worth a check.
