The current default setup, without T.61, has a problem with
8 bit characters. When making the index-files the strings
are uppercased in order to support case-insensitive searches.
Unfortunately this does not apply to 8 bit character, so
looking for such data is a case-sensitive operation.
This creates some problems at this site, quite a few
people have names with characters outside A-Z.

It would be interesting to know if activating the
T.61 translation would help.
