Description:
The ERROR in french is well displayed in latin1:
jc@eMac ~$ cat .my.cnf
[client]
password                = secret
[mysql]
default-character-set   = latin1
jc@eMac ~$ mysql   
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 934 to server version: 4.1.1-alpha-standard

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> SHOW TABLES LIKE '%';
ERROR 1046 (3D000): Aucune base n'a été sélectionnée
mysql> 

But in utf8:
ERROR 1046 (3D000): Aucune base n'a ?t? s?lectionn?e

(I have send this message in ISO-8859-1)

How to repeat:
jc@eMac ~$ cat .my.cnf 
[client]
password                = secret
[mysql]
default-character-set   = utf8
jc@eMac ~$ mysql
Welcome to the MySQL monitor.  Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 932 to server version: 4.1.1-alpha-standard

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

mysql> SHOW TABLES LIKE '%';
ERROR 1046 (3D000): Aucune base n'a ?t? s?lectionn?e
mysql> 

Suggested fix:
Convert error messages to respect client's charset.
