That is exactly what it is supposed to do. But there is a problem with
japanese (and other languages with multibyte characters).
The algorithm I am using to do the cutting is working on bytes, but for
japanese characters it should be done on utf8 characters (multibyte).  
I hope to have a fix some time tomorrow.
