Do not speak harshly to anybody; those who are spoken to will answer thee in the same way. Angry speech is painful, blows for blows will touch thee. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhammapada

[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
[Corion]: LanX: Yes, that's the main problem - you have lots (and lots) of workarounds in various places and stages of the processing, and to clean that mess up requires action across the complete codebase. And it's almost impossible to do it piece-by-piece
