This is a bug in perl - which may have been fixed in the latest 
(5.8.5 had a bunch of regexp vs utf8 fixes).

Can you test with perl 5.8.5 and report back? If the problem persists 
will pester one of the perl5-porters to fix it.

just now while answering email, i compiled a new perl 5.8.5 and Gtk2 
(all into a sandbox, so i'm presuming i got all the paths right), and i 
still see the panic.

Me too. In fact I've taken Gtk2 out of the equation. The attached
script still crash.


Content-Description: sv_pos_b2u panic script
use Encode qw( _utf8_on );
my $string='string';
$_='a %1 b %1';
warn $_;

sub replace
{       $_=shift;
        return $_;

This is really strange:

The code:

use utf8;
$s1 = 'string';
$s2 = 'Åtring';
print "\$s1 ($s1) is " . (utf8::is_utf8($s1) ? '' : 'NOT ') . "unicode\n";
print "\$s2 ($s2) is " . (utf8::is_utf8($s2) ? '' : 'NOT ') . "unicode\n";


$s1 (string) is NOT unicode
$s2 (Åtring) is unicode

Upgrading the first string to unicode is what causes the error, though
the string is ASCII and so is also correct UTF8.
