It's probably because my email was itself encoded as UTF-8 that the
tail end was stripped. *sigh*. UTF-8 is hard stuff!
Anywho, I just posted a followup. Drew (from TLUG) is in the same
office as me, and he helped me mash it all out and now it's okay,
*finally*! I had to tell DBI (which told perl??) that the data from the
database was already UTF-8 encoded so that the binmode STDOUT ":utf8"
didn't double-encode it with the connect option 'pg_enable_utf8 => 1'
If only UTF-8 was standard from day 1! Haha, I know...
