It appears that a JDBC realm set up for UTF-8 characters (to a MySQL 5.1 table
also set up for UTF-8 characters) does not work for non-ASCII characters (i.e.
anything else than plain 7-bit ASCII chars). For example, the user "Ã-sterman"
can't log in - ever.
Also, the same problem appears to exist for the password.
I have raised the issue in
but to no avail. you might find some additional information there.
I'll be more than happy to provide any further details, as needed.
My apologies if I have entered this issue under the wrong subcomponent, or
