After code was ported from php 5.1.6 to php 5.2.0-8+etch4 and the webserver was updated to Apache 2.2, a bug traced to the  wddx_serialize_value function appeared. The input utf-8-encoded Russian-alphabet data is incorrectly serialized into xml which breaks all encoding. 

The output is correct under Windows with php 5.1.4 and apache 2.0.59 inslalled. 

Tried to set different locales on the production server ('ru_RU', 'rus_RUS', 'ru_RU.UTF8', 'ru_RU.CP1251'), but none worked. 

Reproduce code:
//values logged before the function show up properly
$text = wddx_serialize_value($this->result);
//if $text is logged, the encoding is broken
