Description:
There is a bug which causes Segmentation fault if I use multibyte character in the MySQL prompt string (e.g. http://graphemica.com/%E2%89%BB). Everything works just fine in MySQL 5.5 but is broken in any later version. The same thing works just fine in any version of Percona or MariaDB.

Here are some details from GDB:

gdb --args mysql -p --prompt "$(echo -e '\\u@\\h \\d \xE2\x89\xBB ')"
...
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

Thanks for looking into this issue. I did some more investigation and have found out that if I set locale to use UTF-8, the MySQL client stops crashing.

$ locale
LANG=
LANGUAGE=
LC_CTYPE="POSIX"
LC_NUMERIC="POSIX"
LC_TIME="POSIX"
LC_COLLATE="POSIX"
LC_MONETARY="POSIX"
LC_MESSAGES="POSIX"
LC_PAPER="POSIX"
LC_NAME="POSIX"
LC_ADDRESS="POSIX"
LC_TELEPHONE="POSIX"
LC_MEASUREMENT="POSIX"
LC_IDENTIFICATION="POSIX"
LC_ALL=
$ locale -a
C
C.UTF-8
POSIX
$ export LANG=C.UTF-8
$ mysql -p

I have also compered the locale with Percona container and they use the same default locale like MySQL container but their MySQL client doesn't crash at all. So I think it must be really some bug in the MySQL client.
