We lack multi byte text input support in XplatUICarbon. Here is a quick hack
that is mostly copied from XplatUIX11 (looks like Carbon is similarly lame as
X11 on multi byte character processing).

Though I haven't fully confirmed if it is right, because mono on osx does not
show any Japanese characters at all. For example, even pasting Japanese
characters onto a TextBox does not work.

Anything can be a repro code, but here is a simple one:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;

public class Test : Form
    public static void Main ()
        Application.Run (new Test ());

    public Test ()
        var tb = new TextBox ();
        Controls.Add (tb);

Reproducible: Always
