I can confirm this.  The problem is not specific to mysql or postgres,
but lies in the serializer itself -- any high-bit bytes are erroneously
encoded into UTF-8 when serializing, even in binary files.

There is no good fix if you're already running with this data in
production.  We should have a patch that fixes the serializer in a few days.
