      Description

      There is the need of setting Hex01 or \u0001 as an enclosure.
      User used a circumvention:

      The Enclosure-Variable is defined in Kettle-Properties as

      dwh.enclosure_hex01=\u0001

      Everything works well at Developer-Design (Windows XP Machines). Enclosures are recognized.

      But if the transformation runs at a Linux-Based Test/Production Server (Suse SLES 10 64 bit), the String-Enclosures in the Import-Data are not recognized by Kettle. Kettle wants to add the Enclosures as part to the Field-String-Data. This results in transformation errors.
