Wow, it seems like that solved both the character and the
speed problems.

Now I just wonder why the rt-test-dependencies script doesn't issue
atleast a warning when finding perl 5.8.0. It just says FOUND like
it should if everything is ok. Please add a warning message.

I used Redhat 9.0 with the latest updates, and that means Perl 5.8.0.
For those interested, what I did to upgrade was:
-Download perl-5.8.3-16.src.rpm from a fedora core 1 ftp
-run: rpmbuild --rebuild --target i686 perl-5.8.3-16.src.rpm
-Now, install the 3 perl rpm files located in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i686/
