Yep, perl-5.8.9 under Linux affected

$ perlbrew exec --with perl-5.8.9 perl -MDevel::Peek -e 'use utf8; Dump pack 'A20', "FREIGHT  INTRASTATE"'
perl-5.8.9

SV = PV(0x1d14100) at 0x1d11350
  REFCNT = 1
  FLAGS = (PADTMP,POK,pPOK)
  PV = 0x1d69870 "FREIGHT \342\200\223 INTRASTA"\0
  CUR = 20
  LEN = 32


$ perlbrew exec --with perl-5.10.0 perl -MDevel::Peek -e 'use utf8; Dump pack 'A20', "FREIGHT  INTRASTATE"'
