I am not sure how much help I will be able to since I have been unable
to generate (JAPANESE HIRAGANA LETTER A) for testing. I will do my best
to help you investigate this on your system though.
What version of PHP do you have? What version of MySQL do you have?
Here are several things you should try see where the data is being
1. Print out the data as soon as it is submitted. You can do this by
adding var_dump($_POST); to new.php.
2. Print out the data immediately before it is inserted. You will need
to edit include/class.issue.php, the insert() method, about line 1665.
Let me know if the character is still intact at both of those places.
