Summary: Broken UTF-8 support in Version 08.02.0002

Initial Comment:
I have an english Windows 2000 with this driver, that connects to a 8.1.4 postgres DB. Previous I use the 7.4 version.

With the old driver (I guess some 7 version, I cannot find the exat string) I could connect to 7.4 version and get UTF-8 data (in this case japanese) without any issues. I added the "SET client_encoding TO 'UTF-8' in my db connect script.

Once I upgraded to the new driver I just get ??? back from the db. From both, either the 8.1 or the 7.4. I tried the old driver on the new db, but that doesn't work either.

I also tried the Postgres "UNICODE" driver, but there I get also just ??? back.

So I had to revert my upgrade for now. Is there any debug data I can provide? Client or Server side?

I too am having trouble with unicode driver.  I can confirm the data is utf-8, as is the db.  The client is utf-8.  The driver seems to break it however.  Why is conn_encoding=other?  Is that normal?  

DSN info: DSN='asdf',server='localhost',port='5432',dbase='omgmusic',user='asdf',passwd='asdf'

I see "SEL_C_WCHAR" popping up in the mylog file. All the data in the mylog is correct UTF-8. Just when I read the data in with the ASP code I just get question marks where before I got the correct UTF-8 data.

I have changed nothing on the system nor in the code. The only thing I did, was upgrading the PSQL drivers and since then I have this mojibake problem.

  it's interesting for me how you access the data? Do you request unicode data (SQL_WCHAR) or only ansi (SQL_CHAR)?
If you don't know please send me the mylog output (odbc driver option in Global and DataSource).
