Hi Egor,

I could reproduce your issue! Using the first query u"SELECT '\uff08'" server returns "\xef\xbc\x88" which is correct utf-8 encoding of this character. Now our code for decoding utf-8 stumbles over this byte sequence, because it treats the first \xEF character as a BOM marker!

I will report a bug about this and it should be eventually fixed. Thanks a lot for uncovering this obscure bug in our code!
