    [LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
    [Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
    [LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
    [Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
    [Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
    [LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
    [Corion]: "flag problem" to me sounds like "contains UTF-8 bytes but was never properly decoded to an UTF-8 string"
    [LanX]: not my code ...
    [choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
    [choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
