Nope, I believe that is the PerlIO layer complaining because it didn't 
think it was going to be outputting wide characters.

I thought that saying;

use open ':utf8';

should have solved that problem, but it didn't.

However saying;

use encoding ':utf8';


I'm using SOAP::Lite 0.67 and have tried with 0.69 with the same 
results. Like I say, it's weird, since there is code in there to handle 
this case! It just doesn't seem to work for me...
