This means that *your* commandline client has a bug. Namely, it can't
find the APR ICONV libraries to deal with different language encodings.
  Try setting your APR_ICONV_PATH environment variable correctly.

I promise you, the commandline client handles locales and encodings
just fine. Please don't file a bug. :-)
