I cannot reproduce this. I assume you may see it wrong.
note that the you may be mislead by the correct behaviour.
The second argument "outputname" is not the name of any input file but
is the name to use for later uudecode. See the "begin" line contains
your desired filename.
t1:reed$ uuencode /etc/passwd whatever | head -1
begin 644 whatever
t1:reed$ uuencode /etc/passwd whatever | uudecode
t1:reed$ head -1 whatever
I think this ticket may be closed, but please double check for yourself.
