Er, not sure how I can be more specific - the test cases are provided in 
my initial post 
(, they 
don't use a database, web server, or browser, so those can easily be 
eliminated as possible culprits.  Ideally, the test cases should speak 
for themselves.

I'm afraid it doesn't, as the test cases clearly demonstrate.  Note: 
It's not "file handling", it's PerlIO, which refers to all I/O, 
including STDOUT.

iconv converts text files, not Perl code - that still requires wetware 
as far as I know.  Encode is being used in the test cases, and clearly 
messes things up in Apache::ASP.
