Hi, I may be too late, seeing your message has been here since nearly two months, but it could still be of use to you or someone else.
I may be wrong, but it seems to me like the problem does not reside with the whitespaces, but with the definition of word in Perl : \w+ does not match chinese characters.
On my system (with unicode locale and chinese readable in the console) :
(Chinese chars were jumbled, I didn't put the codes in the one-liner)
Furthermore, I played a bit with your code, and when I replaced
it did the job I expected of it.
The quickest workaround I see at the moment would be to declare $word using CJK character ranges instead of \w.
Hope I could be of help.
