The second, in the regex engine, causes '.' to match against
bytes rather than characters when using the /s operator for
the regex match. I thought I had a suitable patch, unfortunately
it merely succeeded in breaking \C instead :-( I've attached
it anyway as it may help someone else develop a proper patch
for this problem. Also attached a script to demo the problem.
Will investigate, thanks for the demo script. (The \C is Evil.)
Try whether #11575 (use http://public.activestate.com/cgi-bin/perlbrowse)
works for you.
Further digging around produced the patch #11577.

A propos, these patches may or may not apply cleanly to the 5.7.2
sources, since more patching has been happening nearby: you may want
to subscribe to perl5-porters and wait for the next developer snapshot.
