[Mediawiki-l] Category alphabetical sorting

I've seen that the collation on the field by which they are sorted in mysql is utf8_bin. I changed it for a test to utf8_general_ci but nothing changed.

Btw I've read about several such issues in 2006 in the bug tracking system and thought that may be there is already some solution but it doesn't seem  like that.

Usually, they are. But the sorting is probably per-ascii instead of 
per-language. There may be some settings (on mysql?) to tweak it.
