[Koha] problem importing MARC records, probably a character set issue

I've been working on converting an Athena-exported bunch of MARC records to a format Koha likes. My latest script seems to convert everything nicely except...
...Around the 117th entry the import into catalogue fails. On inspection I detected a non-ascii character in the 117th record. Specifically, it's an 'e' with an accent, as in Andre'. This is the first time in the file that a non-ascii character ( a character above 127 ) occurs.
Has anyone had experience with this?
I'm using MARC::Record, MARC::Field, etc. to do the conversion. Interestingly, the MARC files that come directly from Athena import just fine (except that the barcode info doesn't get imported because of the 852/952 issue).
I'll post more details after I get some sleep.
Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.
