We already look into the perl script to migrate to utf8.

We recently upgraded from Postgres 8.0 (or 8.1 I don't recall which) to 8.3, which had stricted UTF-8 checking, and we had to manually go in and fix up all the UTF-8 errors that were allowed to creep in.  It was painful, but scripting it helped a lot... :-)

It sounds really like you have a mysql bug.  It seems the correct forum for you is where you filed your bug report.
