SPUG: Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string)

According to perldoc perldiag:

Malformed UTF-8 character (%s)

    Perl detected something that didn't comply with UTF-8 encoding rules.

    One possible cause is that you read in data that you thought to be in
    UTF-8 but it wasn't (it was for example legacy 8-bit data).  Another
    possibility is careless use of utf8::upgrade().

Can you provide any other information about the application you're having
trouble with?

                                things can go wrong at once.
