in reply to The glass is...

There is two glasses. The first contains 2 dcl of red wine, the second 2 dcl of white wine. You will sequentially move one spoon of wine from 1. gl to 2. gl, mix it, two spoons from 2. gl to 1. gl, mix it, and one spoon from 1. gl to 2. gl. Is more concentrated red wine in 1. gl or white wine in 2. gl. ? (No side effects, no jokes...)
Update: I prefer red wine...

    I would say about the same.

    But anyhow, I still don't like wine. So we could trown them away and get that 2l of Pepsi instead!

[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 :-/
LanX hates UTF8 for causing knots in his brain and stomach
