Hi everyone!

I have a problem with Unicode in irb on Windows. I recognized it when
trying to save an attribute of an ActiveRecord-Model with an umlaut
(for example "όΕ) in script/console. If the database connection is
encoded in utf8, everything after the umlaut gets truncated, in the
default encoding I get funny characters back. It doesn't matter if the
$KCODE is set to UTF8 or NONE, the character number stays the same
(also on plain irb)!

Does anyone has a hint on how to solve this? Of course I could try
things such as Cygwin, but I am trying to find an elegant solution for
Windows-Users, which eventually could merge in the next
InstantRails-release, if Curt agrees.

Thanks a lot,

Michael
