ASCII-8BIT encoding of mysql query results

Reported by Michael Hasenstein | April 4th, 2010 @ 10:09 AM

This is a copy of a ticket created for Rails 2.x, since I have the same issue with Rails 3 (latest git version as of today, past Beta 2), and Ruby 1.9.2.

Essentially, mysql text columns are US-ASCII and therefore create an error "incompatible with UTF8". The database IS "UTF8" of course.

(EDIT: sorry if this ticket still is marked "2.3.6", it seems I'm not intelligent enough to figure out how to get this in "3.0". Very strange UI this lighthouse has.
