Hi Oleg,

I'm lacking a MySQLdb 1.2.2 driver as well as a MySQL 5 Server here, so
I cannot reproduce your problem or verify your patch.

But the value for "self._encoding" is taken from your connections.conf.
If there is no such value provided, it will default to "utf-8".  This
value will be used for all encoding and decoding of the unicode values
in use.

So if you appear to have everything encoded/decoded in latin-1 you're
likely having an "encoding=latin-1 (or iso8859-1)" in your
connections.conf (for that connection).

Aside from that, your patch suggests setting the charset via keyword
instead of performing an explicit "SET NAMES" when using a MySQL 5+.  As
you've mentioned this works fine with the MySQLdb 1.2.2 driver.  Can you
check this with a MySQLdb 1.2.1 driver ?  If it works there too, we can
integrate your patch.

Thanks for your suggestions,

Have a nice day
