This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.12.3.

[Please describe your issue here]

Was looking at ways to do upper/lower case compare, and bumped into
piconv as being a 'drop in replacement for "iconv"'.  So I decided to try
it thinking it would be a 'hoot' if it was faster.

Rather than faster, it choked at the beginning of my 98M test file
(i.e. I truncated the file to the first few lines, 672 bytes), which
reproduces the problem just fine .. Trés sad...
