I experience difficulties to import databse of over 2 MB.

I want to be sure I can restore my whole site if neccesary. So I exported the 
db of 2.6 MB and I tried to import it again. I used 2 different scripts, but 
each time, german and french caracters like ß, ä, é, ç are not correct.

Then I tried with phpmyadmin by exporting into 2 files of less than 2 MB. The 
first file is imported correctly, but the second one not, phpmyadmin says it 
has wrong lines. I tried several times with the same result.

I tried again, but this time I imported first file2 and then file1, and this 
seems to work correctly. I tried twice with the same result.

I never had such problems before, but I never had a database > 2 MB.
