Bug #8123: Transcoding exception when using replace along with universal_newline
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/8123

Author: k776 (Kieran P)

Target version: 
ruby -v: 1.9.3 and 2.0.0


The following can be reproduced on 1.9.3-p385, 1.9.3-p392, and 2.0.0-p0.

  body, charset = "hey", "hey".encoding.to_s
  body = body.encode('UTF-8', charset,
    :invalid => :replace, :undef => :replace,
    :replace => '', :universal_newline => true
  )
  Encoding::ConverterNotFoundError: code converter not found (universal_newline)

However, if you remove ":replace => '', ", then it works as intended.

Seems you can't use the two options together.
