No news.

All the same. All old posts with 'ö/ä/ü' with strange signs.

Why this happen?

AFAIK, this isn't the first time.
In past this happened also.

It's a DB mistake?

I'm not sure, but Matt mentioned in technical news problems with DB dumps and scripts to avoid those. I think those strange characters (as well as many escaped single quotes (\')) result from running tose scripts. By the way, not only German umlaute are affected, but generally UTF-8 characters that are not from the US-ASCII set.

Gundolf
[edit]Profiles are affected too.[/edit]
