comment From where do the encodings supported by Terminal come?
One imagines that, if UTF-16 would work, I wouldn't have asked the question... but in any event, I might as well have asked about a custom encoding. My question was "From where does this list come?" and "How can one add further encodings?", neither of which are addressed by your answer. -1

I need UCS-2, rather than UTF-16.

comment From where do the encodings supported by Terminal come?
I think you're referring to the "Character encoding" drop-down under "International" on the "Settings > Advanced" tab (at least on Mountain Lion 10.8.5)? The "Customize Encodings List..." option at the bottom of that control takes me to the "Encodings" tab to which my question refers (the list to which I would like to add further encodings).

comment Cannot wake Mountain Lion from safe sleep
I used to use hibernatemode=3 (so only entered safe sleep after a long period of "light" sleep), and consequently only occasionally encountered the problem. I can't be certain when it first began, but now that I use hibernatemode=25 (always use safe sleep), it has obviously become a more pressing problem.

Thanks for the suggestion - but whatever it is that a reinstall does to fix the problem (if indeed it will do so in my case), it must be possible to effect the same change without resorting to such drastic measures! Indeed, I would really like to understand what is going on here.

Thank you for your thoughts! Sadly, I can't SSH in whilst the machine is in its frozen state as it is, well, frozen: it doesn't respond to the network at all (have tried both wifi and ethernet over USB). I agree that this issue is FileVault-linked, but I'm increasingly of the view that the fault actually lies in some part of the I/O Kit registry that's saved to NVRAM in order to effect waking from safe sleep. I intend to file a bug report once I have more precise details to file.

@danielAzuelos: Yes, the behaviour is consistent and reproducible; it does not appear that any files under ~/Library/Preferences or /Library/Preferences (including subfolders) are modified upon display connection/disconnection.

comment Cannot wake Mountain Lion from safe sleep
@danielAzuelos: My "bob" account (even if deleted and recreated) has no matching files but is now exhibiting identical behaviour to my normal user account (which does have a single matching file). I am also doubting whether the "bob" account ever worked correctly, as I don't recall seeing the EFI login on wakeup before now - perhaps the machine hadn't fully hibernated and I therefore unwittingly woke it from a shallow sleep and jumped to a premature conclusion that the "bob" account was working.
