Bug Description

GET on servers/{instanceid}/detail or servers/detail or servers/{instanceid}/metadata returns a 500 to the user. We should support unicode.

This is reproducible when using mysql.

    Fixing a unicode related metadata bug.

    When a server had metadata with unicode characters in the values, doing a GET
    on servers details would return a 500 error. This fixes that bug.
