	More debugging and hunting.  It looks like some sort of race or
something, because I cannot make it trigger while stepping through the
code.  I have to 'continue' until it is looping, then C-c it.
	Why is g_utf8_skip[0] == 1?  If \0 is the end of a string, this
skips beyond the end.  I noticed this while debugging, because when this
situation occurs, you have channel->encoded_read_buf->str== "\0garbage".
nextchar = g_utf8_next_char("\0garbage"); should not move the nextchar
pointer to "garbage" IMHO.  If there is a reason for it, let me know.
	This is still not the entire problem, as got_bytes == 17 (or 22,
or whatever) guarantees that even with nextchar walking past \0 the
first garbage character the while() will not be FALSE.

Still puzzled
