Do you want to see step-by-step how I got to the point where the special character got into first_alpha with all code along the way?

No matter how hysterical I get, my problems are not time sensitive. So, relax, have a cookie, and a very nice day!

    I suspect something happens after first_alpha, i.e. to its result -- \xC3 transformed to \xFFFD, but it was idle curiosity on my part, tangentially related to your problem (solved by choroba's advice), it's not worth your investigation, don't mind.
