When connecting to a all-utf8 database, an MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlException: Invalid character set index: 200
 is thrown. If the all fields in table are changed into latin1, the error does not occur.

How to repeat:
Using a table test_tbl with one field varchar(255) utf8, and the following code

using MySql.Data.MySqlClient;
MySqlConnection dbcon = new MySqlConnection("Data Source=localhost;Database=db;User ID=;Password=");
MySqlCommand dbcmd = dbcon.CreateCommand();
dbcmd.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM test_tbl";
MySqlDataReader result = dbcmd.ExecuteReader();

StackTrace is:
[MySqlException: Invalid character set index: 200]
   MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior)

If i change the field to latin1, the error does not occur.

Can you post the output of show create table on that table?  We have utf-8 support working really well and I am not sure where this 200 is coming from.

In my.ini: default-character-set=utf8 (error also occurs when set to latin1 in my.ini)


CREATE TABLE `test_tbl` (
  `test` VARCHAR( 255 ) NOT NULL
) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_swedish_ci TYPE = MYISAM;

Running this results in the exception mentioned above.
