[Israel.pm] Hebrew with CGI

It seems that my web host is using mod_security and that is blocking my requests.
I could remove the encodeURIComponent from the document.title and then it would work for Hebrew sites, although it will break at some point so I don't really want to do it.

Well, it works perfectly for me. The following CGI script:
print Dumper \%ENV;
And the following client:
my $f = io("localhost:80");
GET /cgi-bin/shlomi/unicode-char.pl?str=\%u0509 HTTP/1.0\r
Work as expected. Even this one does:
my $cgi = CGI->new();
print "<html><body>Hi there! " . $cgi->param("str") . "</body></html>\n";
So I guess it's a web-server bug or misconfiguration.
I'm using perl-5.8.6-6.1.102mdk on Mandriva 2005 LE, Apache 2 2.0.53-9mdk.
It's probably running as CGI and I haven't checked with mod_perl yet.
