Some of the perl bugs only seem to appear in UTF-8 locales (e.g.

I get the same error from lintian (only when I run it on a changes file, not
a deb file), and I use a UTF-8 locale.  But it happens in my case apparently
because it doesn't find enough room in /tmp.  Lintian runs fine on one of my
smaller packages, but breaks on a larger package (xprint-xprintorg, src 18MB,
/tmp has 85MB free).

I'm still on version 1.21 though, haven't upgraded to 1.21.1 yet.
