Yes, it all starts to make sense :) Thanks for all the great clarifications.
MyApp is working fine now with C::P::Unicode and the ENCODING setting. By the
way, does anybody know why the ENCODING option is undocumented? IMHO, it really
should be mentioned in the Catalyst::Manual alongside some best-practice for
Unicode. Use C::P::Unicode and ENCODING: UTF-8 should be enough for most people
