Hello

I have a Swedish forum there some of the users have Swedish characters in their user names. I have now noticed that if two users have user names that looks alike but are different, they will not be able to login.

Example:
One user has the user name "daniel" and the other user has the user name "däniel".

I can confirm this misbehaviour in one of <del>my accessible</del> servers <ins>I have access to</ins>. The reason is the use of the collation utf8_general*. A blog entry (in german language) offers a solution, the use of the collation utf8_bin. But this has the same issues like your unique index and has to be implemented equally careful.

Tschö, Auge
