Hmm... I now see that update 169 changes the character set on the tables.  
But the process checks for the database's default character set before 
running.  If the default character set is already UTF-8, it doesn't run. 
This check was put in the initial commit, 1.186, by unconed.

I feel that may be a mistaken attempt at being efficient.  Just because a
database's default character set is UTF-8 doesn't mean the necessary 
tables have that default and that the columns in said tables are that 
character set.  It seems the process should run no matter what.
