 (In [24485]) Fix encoding of names in program details screen.

 Qt-MySQL drivers use QVariant::ByteArray for string-type MySQL fields
 marked with the BINARY attribute (those using a *_bin collation) and
 QVariant::String for all others.  Since QVariant::toString() uses
 QString::fromAscii() (through QVariant::convert()) when the QVariant's
 type is QVariant::ByteArray, we have to use QString::fromUtf8() explicitly
 to prevent corrupting characters for any columns using a binary collation
 (or, at the minimum, in any location where the value retrieved from the
 database is shown to the user).

 The following columns are binary (using utf8_bin collation), and may
 require similar treatment:
