Show your code, and also which exact versions of ruby, ruby-sqlite3 and 
operating system you are using.

Are you sure it doesn't "return the right characters"? How do you know? 
Use str.bytes.to_a to be sure, which will show you the actual byte 
codes, and compare this str.bytes.to_a for the strings you put into the 
database.

Any data you put into sqlite3 should be returned the same. The string 
you get back from sqlite3 might be tagged with the wrong encoding (in 
ruby 1.9), but it should at least be the same string of bytes. 
Furthermore the encoding tag shouldn't affect how they are displayed, at 
least if you're using a regular "puts" to write them out, and haven't 
started messing with external encoding settings.
