You sound like you've got the background to describe the situation and
help people understand the signficance of it. To me it's an obvious
solution to what's otherwise a rather tricky situation: you need to
connect to the DB using the right charset; so why not detect that in
the process of connecting? (We just got this problem resolved in the
jTDS JDBC driver.)
