Yes, that's a Perl bug affecting Text::Quoted. Unfortunately Text::Quoted
is still mandatory with RT 3.6.1; you'll have to edit a Mason file to
disable it.

 If you can't see all the content of your tickets, you may be hitting
 a Perl bug that makes it crash with some UTF-8 data sequences. 
 See http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=40989 .
 Starting with 3.6.3, a workaround is to remove the libtext-quoted-perl
 package. Another workaround is to copy
 and comment out the Text::Quoted call in the local copy.
I believe the bug is fixed in the recently-released Perl 5.10, which should get 
into the next Debian release.

Hope this helps,
