> the test_string tests in Ruby 1.9 repository do seem to mostly function
You mean test/ruby/test_m17n.rb, test/ruby/test_m17n_comb.rb,
test/ruby/test_io_m17n.rb and test/ruby/enc/test_*.rb?
test/ruby/test_string.rb does not contain anything m17n related.

No two regexp engines have the same behavior, there's nothing anyone
can do about that...
It looks like Oniguruma has a support for UTF-16 so I was thinking
about using that in MacRuby. But as Oniguruma sees everything as a
list of bytes, I do not know if you could use the Oniguruma UTF-16
support without modifying your Oniguruma port.
