Comment 5 for bug 1127450

Having looked more into this, I have to amend my previous, overly optimistic message. Please, do not use that workaround, and, at least until 2.2.2, do not use --bulk-insert with anything besides binary data / latin1 -- It may corrupt your data by double-encoding things.

There were two issues here: First, the missing encodings for the bulk-insert filehandle, and second, a missing 'CHARACTER SET ...' for the LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE statement. Once this is properly fixed in trunk, I'll try posting a workaround for previous versions of pt-archiver here.
