using String.getBytes("UTF-8") does not change the behaviour.

Running the code as a bundle inside Eclipse leads to

=== cut ===
 length() = 1
 cast to byte = -89 
 getBytes() = -62 -89
=== cut ===

while starting it as a bundle in a running Equinox framework outside
Eclipse leads to

=== cut ===
+Ã-Â length() = 2
+Ã-Â cast to byte = -62 -89
+Ã-Â getBytes() = -61 -126 -62 -89
=== cut ===

I don't think that this is the reason of the watched behaviour. Executing
the same
code without a running Equinox framework leads to the correct identical
result in- and outside
Eclipse. When running it in an Equinox instance, both results differ. So it
looks for me like an
Equinox issue.

Currently I am migrating a bigger application on top of Equinox. The last
days I was working to get
it to start again outside my development environment. That was the time
where a detected the watched
