        Description

        When a class has evolved and the remote FVD is queried, we are
        currently sending TCKind._tk_char as the type for Java chars, but
        we actually read and write CORBA wchars.

        It really looks like we should send _tk_wchar for the type of
        the ValueMember in this case.

        This could prevent interoperability with other ORBs when class
        evoluation occurs.

        However, fixing it directly will affect class evolution with our
        older ORBs.

        We might need to use whatever versioning is in place to deal with this,
        as we have with so many other bugs from Kestrel.
