I think I've pinpointed the problem to mythfilldatabase using QT-3.3.0. I did 
some tests. If I manually inserted a converted string (echo едц | iconv -f 
latin1 -t utf8 ) to the program table in the databae it shows up correctly, 
each char has been converted to two chars. But mythfilldatabse with QT-3.3.0 
converts to three chars making it displaying raw utf8 in both windows and 
linux browsers. Going back to QT-3.2.3 make mythfilldatabse only insert two 
chars correctly.
