Actually, this error message means that mysql is correctly giving you
utf8.  You *need* to have mysql_enable_utf8 => 1!  

You also need to load Catalyst::Plugin::Unicode to encode the characters
that your application generates to octets that can be transferred over
the network.  Once you do that, your app will be correct.
