Using myapp_server.pl; eg:

$ ./script/myapp_server.pl -k --port 3124

Yep. Upgrading LWP, Encode and C::P::Unicode::Encoding to latest 
versions was successful.

I tried that before doing above upgrade. It didn't fix the problem.

I'm not getting the "Wide character in syswrite" error now, but 
the symptoms still persist. Also, once the problem starts the 
test server won't respond to any further requests; requires a 
restart. Canceling the current request results in following error:

Caught exception in engine "Wrong Content-Length value: 52"

Any other suggestions?
