It must be UTF8. since 4.1, mysql filter all character not exists in
the charset.

patch t3lib_db youself.
add "SET character set UTF8" after mysql_pconnect (check mysql website)
and make sure all your database, tables are using UTF8 as default charset.
(I gueest using "mysql administrator" and "mysql querybrowser" to check them.

When it config correctly,
"mysql querybrowser" can view/edit all the text prefectly.
