SimpleXmlRpcServer and character encoding

I'm using SimpleXmlRpcServer class. Although I set encoding parameter in the
constructor, I have to return all strings in default platform encoding
(windows-1250/win32 or iso-8859-2/linux in my case). When I send values in,
for example, UTF-8, string received by client is messed up.

The client is written in java using Apache XmlRpc library 2.0.

Is there any solution other than sending all string values in Base64
