Thanks for your reply.

I did search the archives. Could not find anything relevant.

Right now, the solution I have in mind (as a work around) is:
1. replace each of the 3 problem chars with a control char
2. mysqldump the koha database
3. replace the control char with the corresponding problem char
4. restore into mysql
Is there a better work around ?
Unless someone is already at it,
I would like to look at the incompatibility issue
for unicode in bulkmarcimport.
Would you know whats the problem ?
Any pointers would be useful.
