Troubles With the names of columns :

You have one columns or more which used some french characters in version 4.0.20 like :
Create table MyTable (

Données Text ,
Amitié     Text,

insert into MyTable values ( 'AAAA', 'BBB')

and then upgrade to Version 4.1.x

Once you do that, with MyOdbc Version 2.5.x you can't retrieve the values: Mysql generates an error message.

How to repeat:
Cf. Description.

Suggested fix:
Well, well, I don't know !!! But I'am sure that you will find how to do that.

Or, have some good users who are not stupids like me and don't use French Characters in the tables definitions.

Verified with 4.1.3 / Linux

Table names are now always stored as UTF8 internally,
no matter what the default character set is.

The "Upgrading from 4.0 to 4.1" manual section should mention this
