The cause of problem was the chrooted server. When I switched off chrooting, 
the problem disappear.

I've done strace on my test program. Trace shows that some files in 
/usr/lib/gconv/ must be opened by iconv_open (at least on my Fedora Core 5 and 
ALT linux systems). Of course, these files are not accessible in chroot jail.
Hence "use chroot = 1" option is not compatible with --iconv switch.

Wayne, may be you should mention this issue in docs (considering, that 
chrooting daemon is default behavior)? Iconv.diff is the only place for this 
moment to do this.
