The funny part is, I don't believe the data is actually corrupted. I
think the database tries to convert it incorrectly, using the info about
the encoding of the columns (which might be incorrect) and the encoding
used by the client. The actual data, when I display it via Flame Robin
or isql seems to be OK, it's the sorting or uppercasing that goes weird.
Thanks for the suggestions anyway.
