According to
char mxn with m,n>1 shall be converted into String[].
What happens is that it is converted into String.

With the java class attached, try:


and then


This is really nonsense because str has type String.
t.str yields 'ab'.

The problem is in ov-java::unbox
where also ['ab';'cd';'ef'] is a string value
converted into an UTF-string.
