    Google found something for me:
    Search for "18030" on this page. Quote:

        On AIX V5.1, APAR IY26937 provides support for conversion between GB18030
        (CCSID 5488) and Unicode. Support is NOT provided for the conversion
        between GB18030 and 1388 (EBCDIC). Conversion between these CCSIDs can
        cause unpredictable results.
