This is a bug report for perl from khw@khw-desktop.nonet,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.13.1.


-----------------------------------------------------------------
A user-defined \N{} alias must currently map to a known Unicode name.
This precludes using the Unicode private use areas.
