Trying to create an actual container (Array) of char elements fails.

This is because the allocated payload creates a char[], which is seen as a
"string", as opposed to a "array of char".

The consequence is that it makes two calls choke:
1) Inside linearRemove: "copy" fails to operate on strings (good thing too).
2) Inside Payload.length: It calls initializeAll, which also fails on strings
(arguably a good thing...?).

The work around is to simply use Array!dchar or Array!(u)byte.

While one could argue that Array!char *should* work, I do not think it is
(currently) worth the effort.

Filling a bug report anyways.
