Likely because Qt 4.5.2 dropped ISO-10646-UCS-2 as a valid codec name.. I 
think KCharsets is using that name as an alias for ucs2 and iso10646-1; and 
hence those likely need to be readjusted to use "UTF-16" as the target codec. 
I am not sure of how the table generation stuff in KCharSets works, though -- 
it mentions some generate_string_table.pl script, which doesn't seem to be in
