I compiled gdal from trunk last week, and noticed that ogr2ogr keeps 
converting UTF-8 strings to LATIN1.  The only thing I've been able to 
find that's remotely related to this is OGR_EDIGEO_RECODE_TO_UTF8 at the 
bottom of http://trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/ConfigOptions  which appears 
to be a way to prevent the opposite of what is happening.  Tested with 
1.8 and it works as expected (i.e. UTF-8 string stay in UTF-8).

Has anyone else seen this?
