[gdal-dev] WFS and -where with non-ASCII characters

I get: ERROR 1: 'Hämeenkylä' not recognised as an available field.

I.e., it seems to not be confused with 'ä' - I'm using a linux, where 
the terminal may be better with UTF8. However, the message confused me, 
it is coming from OGR SQL engine, and it seems that the engine tries to 
parse the constant as a field name.

The fix is to escape ', i.e., \'Hämeenkylä\', which works.
