Subject: UTF-8 encoding problem with $DBI::errstr
Download (untitled) / with headers

From the mailing list: === Michael Hofmann <> There seems to be something wrong with the UTF-8 encoding of $DBI::errstr. The little program below, which tries to connect to a non-existing PostgreSQL database, prints in case of LC_ALL="en_US.utf8": could not translate host name "unknown" to address: [...] which is fine, but for LC_ALL="de_DE.utf8", it prints konnte Hostname »unknown« nicht in Adresse übersetzen: [...] which is wrong! It should be: konnte Hostname »unknown« nicht in Adresse übersetzen: [...] ===
Fixed in r13749, will be part of version 2.16.1

Actually, this fixes all instances except for the a connection problem, as the connection hash is not processed before the failed connection attempt. Nonetheless, marking as resolved, as its the best we can do until we fix up UTF-8 handling in general (coming soon!)
