Today we where hit by this, and I dug into the code...

The problems seems to lie in WWW::Mechanize and 

I was able to (sort of) fix it with the attached two patches.

T:W:M:C tests work after those patches (as do our tests...), but 
WWW::Mechanize spews some "Parsing of undecoded UTF-8 will give garbage 
when decoding entitie" warnings. And I'm not in the mood for utf8 
debugging ...

I have to say that I did not analyse the whole problem, and in fact we 
just downgrade to libwww-perl-5.808. But if these findings help someone 
with deeper knowledge to really solve the problem, I'd be delighted!
