The do_ascii remains essentially unchanged since a long time.

Most likely. Apart from a possible problem in the library, a
mismatch between a version of perl the Convert::UUlib was compiled
against, vs. the running version, might also cause a problem.

I tested briefly (for a couple of hours) with uulib V0.5pl20
(through Convert::UUlib 1.50), from FreeBSD ports.
Seemed to work, but then I disabled it for production usage.
