py-mysql-1.2.1, Revision: 410
Mysql 5.0.24 on windows
my.ini contains: default-character-set=utf8
This problem is related with SQLObject but I have found
that in the end in is related with py-mysql. I have
checked the code and found some parts that does not
seem to be working:
set_character_set is called with 'utf8'
super(Connection, self).set_character_set(charset) fails
and self.query('SET NAMES %s' % charset) is executed.
I will test this problem later on FreeBSD as well.
