set names 'utf8'

When I set up a table in 4.1 and give it a default charset of utf8, then enter valid utf8 values, mysql alters some of those values into non-utf8 values without telling me.

The cure is to issue the "set name 'utf8'" instruction at the start of the session.

Unless someone can explain to me some good reason why it behaves like this, this is a pretty nasty BUG.
