Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 312021
Cyrillic (UTF-8, non-latin1) letters are lost after a while
Last modified: 2013-06-23 22:46:57 EDT
Description of problem:
Some bugs, that contain non-latin1 letters (ex: cyrillic) display OK
initially, but after a while all non-latin1 letters turn into '?'s.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a bug in bugzilla.redhat.com
2. Wait a while (weeks/months)
3. Check the bug back
Sometimes the non-latin1 letters of the bug report are lost (and replaced
All text in UTF-8 to prevent such losses.
You may check Bug 240087 Comment 3. These '?'s were all cyrillic letters and
they were fine. These days bugzilla suffered a crash and when I checked the
bug back... I am guessing this can be caused by a bad database backup/restore.
Hmm, Bug 240087 Comment 3 is fixed somehow, no bug?
I'm closing this one - no responses and no problems any more.
