Hi. Reproduced in new Catalyst Project - only change from "catalyst project" was to add catalyst::plugin::unicode::encoding as described in the synopsis for this ( excellent ) module. If I then type the following into my browser: http://localhost:3000?q=%FCsomething Then I get a blank screen, and the following in the logs. [error] Caught exception in engine "utf8 "\xFC" does not map to Unicode at ... /perl/site/lib/Catalyst/Plugin/Unicode/ line 96." Line 96 being :- $_ = Encode::is_utf8( $_ ) ? $_ : $enc->decode( $_, $CHECK ); in prepare_uploads This is reproducable on both windows and linux/apache installs. From a user point of view, clicking on a link and the server going boom is far from excellent - but at present I have no way of trapping it in code or trying to do the right thing as the rug has already been pulled form under me... I'll send a patch if I come up with anything.

I have the same issue here with mis-encoded request URLs. Only the line is 114. It is a serious issue as users are likely to send invalid data and invalid URIs. Wrapping the offending line in an eval{} at least allows to get the control back to the application. In my case it is seen as a 404 error, which is fair enough for now.
