Poster name encoding wrong

Houston, we have an issue.

Yesterday I installed the es_ES language pack and set the locale for backoffice, blogs and user (I am the only one) to that language. Now everything's fine save for one thing: my name.

I can find no way to tell b2evo to put "Sebastián" in there. Every time I change my name in the user settings to be right ("Sebastián"), and save the settings, it gets changed to "Sebasti|n" (well, it's not that character, but you get the idea). It appears that way in the "posted by" section of the published posts. I had to tell b2evo to show my surname ("Lalaurette") until I can fix it.

The rest of the interface is fine.

This change didn't make it into the stable version.

It will be in next release.

EDIT: I didn't know that the stable version is already released. Let me check...

EDIT2: Devs didn't include this fix in stable release. Probably because the fix is unstable :-/ :roll:

with errors like this you need to check the charset used by your database, each Db table and each DB field and make sure it's consistent with how b2evo talks to the DB.
This happens when you change charsets from one default locale to another.
