[Rt-devel] different database encodings

it´s me again with another problem. I have a second database with encoding 
sql_ascii. At this database I send queries by DBIx::SearchBuilder. Now I have 
the problem with umlauts. I can´t search for umlauts and I get the words back 
without umlauts. That´s not fine. 
When I make a search to the logfile of postgres, it tells me, that DBIx checks 
the database-encoding with the sql-query "select getdatabaseencoding();"
Does it change there anything at the encoding from my sqlascii-database? 
Or can´t it read sql_ascii?
Can I tell the SearchBuilder to change his encoding to sql_ascii or who of
the system don´t understand it?
Is it generally possible with RT and DBIx::SearchBuilder to work with a 
sql_ascii-database or only with unicode-databases?

Thanks for help,
