I'm having some trouble duplicating this. The hyphen that Tom's testcase shows isn't a unicode character under any of the versions of perl/perldoc I tested. In old 5.14ish versions, I found this inconsistency:

$ PERL_UNICODE=0 perl-5.14.0/bin/perldoc perlunicode | grep "returns true if the" | uniquote -v
       \N{MIDDLE DOT}   "DO_UTF8(sv)" returns true if the "UTF8" flag is on and the bytes
           pragma is not in effect.  "SvUTF8(sv)" returns true if the "UTF8"
       \N{MIDDLE DOT}   is_utf8_char(s) returns true if the pointer points to a valid UTF-8
$ PERL_UNICODE=S perl-5.14.0/bin/perldoc perlunicode | grep "returns true if the" | uniquote -v
       \N{LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH CIRCUMFLEX}\N{MIDDLE DOT}   "DO_UTF8(sv)" returns true if the "UTF8" flag is on and the bytes
           pragma is not in effect.  "SvUTF8(sv)" returns true if the "UTF8"
       \N{LATIN CAPITAL LETTER A WITH CIRCUMFLEX}\N{MIDDLE DOT}   is_utf8_char(s) returns true if the pointer points to a valid UTF-8

But that's just a literal * in newer versions. Does anyone know if this is still a potential issue?
