Statements, which contain utf characters are logged into the log tables incorrectly.
See sample below.

How to repeat:
mysql> set names utf8;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> create table db1.t25 (s1 char(5) character set utf8 default
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.01 sec)
mysql> insert into db1.t25 values ('þÿİı');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.00 sec)
mysql> select * from mysql.general_log;
... part of the result is:
insert into db1.t25 values ('þÿİı')
