I have the same problem with my multilingual site (english + russian +
turkish). Everything non-ascii is stored as utf-8 in the tables. I
think that you will have to dig deep into index search's code and make
conversion from Unicode into ASCII and back again.

That's what I am going to try in the upcaoming days, even though I
don't like the sound of it :(
