[Haskell-cafe] hsql-mysql encoding issues

I am using hsql-(mysql-)1.8.2
When compiled with ghc-7.6, the resulting executable
does not seem to be able to read strings from the DB correctly
(umlauts do "vanish")
while it worked with hsql-(mysql-)1.8.1 and ghc-7.4.
the mysql server says (show variables)
| character_set_client | latin1 |
| character_set_connection | latin1 |
| character_set_database | latin1 |
| character_set_filesystem | binary |
| character_set_results | latin1 |
| character_set_server | latin1 |
| character_set_system | utf8 |
hsql is using type String all over the place,
while it should be ByteString?
uses Foreign.C.String.peekCStringLen .
Did the behaviour of this function change?
hsql is quite old, but so is my application.
Assuming I find the time to rewrite my code (not likely) -
what DB binding should I rather be using?
Thanks - J.W.
