Getting a PHP "iconv(): Detected an illegal character in input string in
languages/Language.php on line 786" error message in Special:Listusers, probably
caused by bad binary input. May or may not only be visible with error_reporting(
E_STRICT | E_ALL) enabled. There are two test cases for this, as CURL
command-line scripts, at the following URLs:
(Note for testing you will need to update the URL at the end of the script if
the test wiki is not on "localhost").
I'm just getting "bad title" errors here. Assuming it's been resolved in the meantime?
Still getting it on a test machine, on a r36177 checkout but with a rather old PHP 5.1.2 (on Ubuntu 6.06.2 LTS). Tried it on a different box, running MediaWiki stable 1.12.0 and PHP 5.2.0 (this was Debian 4.0), and got the same error - "Notice: iconv() : Detected an illegal character in input string in languages/Language.php on line 1227" (or line 1229 on the SVN checkout). [note had to add "error_reporting( E_ALL );" to LocalSettings.php, and I was using the 1-0-7.curl.sh test]
However, the above are both non-recent versions of PHP - so it's entirely possible that it's a PHP issue. Let's leave this as closed and when I update the Ubuntu box to 8.04 LTS (which I plan to do at the start of August, after the first LTS point release has been made), then I can do a quick check then with a more modern setup - and if it's still happening then will reopen.
