Sorry, I kind of forgot about this (not sure why this one doesn't show up in my
weekly nag-mail from bz). I looked at it a bit tonight, but I'm still
considering the options a bit.

What's happening is that it's passing through \xd8\x3d, an incomplete UTF-8
sequence, followed by 'A'. With a functional //IGNORE, we're doing the right
thing and just dropping the invalid sequence on the floor and keeping the 'A'.

I don't know that that's the right thing for the interface, though; I think
this might be worth another flag that you get when you specify //IGNORE while
we retain the legacy behavior for ci_discard_ilseq.
