Thanks, Andries.

2005... that's a real old issue but exactly our issue.
The iconv man page still doesn't explain it well and doesn't make clear that 
you should not miss the second call with NULL input parameters.

I wonder how many source codes are still affected...

Any volunteer to file a bug against the iconv man page ?
