    [LanX]: not my code ...
    [choroba]: yeah, sounds like one of the strings is not flagged as UTF-8
    [choroba]: which usually means its input wasn't handled correctly
    [Corion]: choroba: Yeah, I think that would be the good solution
    [LanX]: I suspect the first string which comes from the DB ...
    [LanX]: ... but this part is already in production for a year now
    [Corion]: LanX: The "good" approach here would be to use the appropriate DBI parameters to make the driver decode strings properly. But that will have a ripple-on effect of messing up all the places where manual decoding happens ;)
    [LanX]: which means albeit being broken UTF8 it'll be handled correctly
    [LanX]: and the problem only occurs since we changed the emails to base64
    [LanX]: my main problem will be to cnvince my colleagues that our productive code is broken oO ... so in the end I will just make a workaround :-/
