Well, this is effing bizzare then.  I didn't just make up the error
message that I reported, and it *does* only seem to arise when some
file containing at least a snippet of UTF-8 is coming into sort,
specifically and only via stdin.

I guess that I get to grovel around in the sort source if I want to
isolate this.  Apparently, nobody else on the planet is affected.
