Given that a UTF8 value can't have a zero length, it seems to suggest that the call path that you arrived at hasn't managed to decode a value. You might have to follow the callpath back to find out what is calling it with an EncodedScalar that has a zero length, and fix it there.

There have been some changes to do with the Unicode parsing and Unicode in general, which of course may conflict with the s390x's code pages; but you'd have to look at the callpath to find out.

You'd have to look into where that's being called, and why it's an empty string, for this to make sense. You can only say that a precondtion for this function failed, not why the string doesn't start with a / with this level of information.
