OK. Let's see what we've got.

I see 15 bugs under your name; 10 of them are open. Only three of them concern
UTF8; two of those three have been fixed, and Hugo is looking at the other one
this weekend. So, there are no outstanding bugs in UTF8 that you have
reported. This doesn't make me happy.

For your reference:

[20000203.009] various problems with 5.5.640
    This is a bit old, and should probably be closed unless you're still
    having problems with openpid.

[20000324.034] perlbug problem && io/openpid test fails
    Duplicate of the above.

[20000406.012] overload recursion not trapped
    This *is* still a problem, and I'll take a look at it if you like. Nothing
    to do with utf8, though.
[20000410.003] File::Glob qw(:glob) does not work
    Sarathy fixed this; the bug report should be closed, I think.
[20000611.001] taking references to overloaded objects removes overloaded'ness
    This is over my head, but it's allowed to be because it doesn't concern
    utf8. I don't actually think it's a bug, but you'll have to talk to
    Raphael or someone.

[20000808.001] lvalue subs fool "tied"
    Quoting you: I think the bug reprot could be closed (or moved to

[20000819.004] $1 etc.. not flagged as utf8
    Hugo's having a look at this.

[20000901.092] O=Debug barfs
    What on earth's pmshort? It's not referenced anywhere else in B. I'd
    say the fix would be to scrap that line - that's remove line 56 of

[20000901.097] undef . utf8
    I'd say you've fixed that; the patch looks great. Jarkko/Nick - could you

[20000903.001] \w in utf8-strings
    Jarkko fixed this.

Everybody happy now? Good.

By God I *KNOW* what this network is for, and you can't have it.
