It looks like 5.8.x is a problem. :(

What it boils down to is this:  Unicode support in Perl prior to 5.10.0
was horrible.  (It's still pretty bad, IMO, but that's a whole other rant.)

Unfortunately, a lot of systems still ship with Perl 5.8.x even though 5.10.0
was released over three years ago.

I'll try to get access to a 5.8.x system to see what can be done.
