Hell, perl handling of utf8 is *broken*!

1) If I insert 'use utf8;' in the first line, the error does NOT go
2) If I insert 'use utf8;' in the first line and comment out the
   Gtk2::Label->new, the error DOES go away.
3) If I insert 'use utf8;' and actualy use a non-ascii in $string, the
   problem DOES go away -- the label is still there!

Now, the error obviously has something to do with the Gtk2 typemap.
Without calling Gtk2::Label->new($string), there is no problem.

But what is strange is, that it makes a difference whether $string
actualy contains a non-ascii character.
