Symptoms

 JIS 0x7425 and 0x7426, added in JIS X 208-1990 can't be converted to ibm* codes with iconv.

Please refer to the following test result. 0xf4a5 and 0xf4a6 are eucJP characters corresponding to JIS 0x7425 and 0x7426.

 

In both cases, they do not get back to 0xf4a5/0xf4a6. Instead both are converted to 0xa2ae.

The result of eaa3/eaa4(SJIS) and e5879c/e78699(UTF-8) are same to f4a5/f4a6(eucJP).
