Query results seem to have started including BOMs sometime today. I had to add code to handle it.

I don't see this documented anywhere.

Question needs specifics. Nevertheless, I checked and something's there (not harming my apps at all). I get F7EF F7BB F7BF though instead of the expected EF BB BF (May be a Firefox artifact). If you fetch the results using the text/plain MimeType, it shouldn't be a problem. (Works for me.) Update: application/json also works for me (BOM auto-handled). – Brock Adams Jul 3 '14 at 2:04
I've reported this here – Andy Jul 3 '14 at 2:15
