Description:
Hi!

A symbolic link file (*.sym) having a UTF8 character in its name is not showing up in the SHOW DATABASES output, thus unusuable.

Geert

How to repeat:
Create a symbolic file in the datadir, with a random UTF8 character (I took an arabic character I think) in its name and put C:\mysql\data\test in it (or wherever the test database is).

mysql> SHOW DATABASES;

Doesn't show the symbolic link.
