You'll need to show me the JSON it is trying to parse. JSON::Any does not actually do any of the parsing itself, it is simply a wrapper for other JSON parsers. -Chris

JSON::Any just proxies the file to one of the backends; it doesn't actually do any decoding itself. You didn't provide any details in the report that indicated which backend was in use. However, in the last year there has been a lot of churn with META.json generation concerning utf8 and unicode encoding; it is quite possible that the meta files in question were badly generated. Please feel free to open a new ticket with more diagnostics if you see this again, but otherwise, I don't think there's anything we can do.
