 Description  « Hide
If any non-Unicode connection has some statements prepared and appropriate SQL text contains non-ASCII characters and the MON$ tables are queried in an Unicode connection, this error is thrown by any v2.1 version.

In v2.1.3 RC1, the situation is even worse: error may happen even if the MON$ tables are queried using the same attachment charset, provided that it's not Unicode. The patch to fix the regression and revert to the pre-v2.1.3 behavior is a trivial one-liner, but a complete fix is somewhat more difficult.

I've been hit by this on a number of occasions. What I do (and recommend my users to do) is use the same charset on the monitoring attachment and on other client attachments.
Unfortunately this is not always possible or desirable.

The complete fix would be most welcome.
Voted +1.

The whole patch is to be backported into HEAD.
