Subject:    UTF8 flag in metadata date fields causes garbage
 
In the date metadata fields passed to the info() method, if the utf8 flag is set, pdfinfo reports garbage in the resulting PDF metadata.

I am working around it by unsetting the utf8 flag as follows:

Code: [Select]
$h{CreationDate} = encode('ASCII', "D:$year$month$day"."000000+00'00'");

Perhaps you could do this in the info() method.
