UTF-8 in current_music/current_mood

In my XML-RPC LJ client I am trying to post russian (KOI-8) text in current_music and mood fields. To do this I use KOI-8 to UTF-8 conversion. Server returns error "Client error: Invalid text encoding: The text entered is not a valid UTF-8 stream".
Everything works ok if using same conversion only for subject and text.

Is there any way to do smth with this, or current_music/current_mood should contain only english strings?
Thanks for any help.
