Yeah, you seem to be right.  That's even documented in the man page
("Currently recognized values are ISO-8859-1, EUC-JP, SHIFT-JIS, and
ISO-2022-JP (other EUC-xx encodings may also work).")  If it actually
uses characters outside of ISO-8859-1, I don't have a solution.  Take a
look at iconv, though.

What exactly do you mean?  It misinterprets UTF-8 input as ISO-8859-1 input?
