Thanks for reporting this!  (Too bad the test does not give more information).  This particular area is under active development, so this test will probably be quite a bit happier in 0.8.1 or 0.9.  What this failure means is that some extremely obscure characters will not pass between server and client correctly, when used in with Athena.  It's pretty unlikely that you'll encounter this in any application, and when it is fixed, it will be transparent (ie, your app will just magically start supporting those characters).

And thanks for pointing this out!  I've created a ticket in the issue tracker for fixing it.
