This probably explains the difference. MSEgui uses UnicodeString and is 
compiled with -Fcutf8 for assignement of Unicode string constants to 
UnicodeString variables and transparent conversion of Unicode string 
constants to system encoding at runtime.
Without -Fcutf8 or {$codepage utf8} FPC copies the 8 bit strings "as is" into 
the executable.
