Question mono / odbc / mysql charset issues.


Ok, I've got a gameserver controller (procon) running on mono on Debian squeeze.
It has a player stats & chat logger, via a plugin, which sends data to a mysql db.

I've moved it from a Windows machine, where its been working great for months, and apart from the logging problems, seems to be fine on top of mono.

So, what is happening? Instead of filling the db with playernames & chat log entries, its filling it with invalid chars. It should be noted that all text to be logged is English with no unusual characters.

When the plugin & sql db were all at default Latin1, it filled the db with just questionmarks, so I changed all references of Latin1 to utf8 in the procon plugin source (its compiled on the fly at launch), and set MySQL to utf8, and now it fills the db with Asian/Chinese characters....

I guess somewhere the correct encoding is not being translated somehow, but its a little above my head.
Any ideas anyone?
