Actually my jabberd is 1.4.3.

Yes, I have separate accounts, one uses a utf-8 terminal and vi editor, 
and the other uses iso-8859-7 & iso-8859-1 respectively, and I've had 
this setup for over a year so it's not like something I just started 
experimenting with.

That is very surprising. Since Perl probably has nothing to do with the 
unicode here, the culprit has to be jabberd then. I'll try to upgrade 
(though I use the apt-get system for which the most recent versions 
don't always exist).

Thanks very much for your feedback.
