[DRE-maint] Bug#597652: redmine: In some contexts accented characters don't display correctly

MySQL 5.1 defaults to Latin-1 and the config files in Squeeze don't
apparently override it. So, yes, MySQL is not UTF-8 in Squeeze.
So as a minimum, the install script should make sure that the default
character set of the redmine database is UTF-8. And, to me at least, this
sounds much like an RC bug.
In addition, it might also make sense to set the collation sequence of the
redmine database/tables to match the language redmine is using. Of course,
this could become quite tricky when reconfiguring redmine changing the
language... But as the default collation sequence appears to be more or
less decent, this would surely not be RC.
