Description Aleksey Nogin 2003-01-05 23:38:46 EST
Every few days I would receive a 200-500Kb long cron message with hundreds lines
of the form:

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected non-continuation byte 0x5c, immediately
after start byte 0xd0) in pattern match (m//) at
/etc/log.d/scripts/shared/removeservice line 29, <STDIN> line 17.

This used to be happening a lot with 8.0 and seems to be still happening in Phoebe.

P.S. I am running my system with LANG="ru_RU.UTF-8"
