Just updrade form DBD 2.9004 to 3.0002. but still have the same problem.

When using mysql with hebrew charset: php and shaell work fine pert not.

When using mysql utf8 charset: perl allso work fine.

The point is that all my data in hebrew charset and I did't find easy 
way to convert it to utf8.
