Greek titles problem

Greetings everyone,

I've installed alfresco-tomcat 1.20 final. I'm using the Greek language pack and all everything seems to work correctly apart from the titles in Content Items and Spaces. They always appear in the form e.g.  ?????.txt  or ?????.html no matter what I enter (note: if I click on them, the corresponding text or html that they refer to appears properly in Greek).

I realise that this is either an encoding problem or the information that concerns the titles is not stored properly into the database.

I've created the alfresco database in UTF-8 (trying as collation utf8-general-ci or even utf8-unicode-ci) in order to get Greek titles appearing properly, but nothing different happened. I've even set the encoding to the specific table & field where the erroneous titles are contained to the ones mentioned above and still I get the same result.

However when I do the following:

a) edit the titles straight from the db (using MySQL Query Browser) and enter Greek text
b) stop and restart alfresco,

then, and ONLY then, the titles appear correctly in Greek.

Is this a bug (wrong parsing of the titles to the db) or am I doing something wrong?

A prompt reply will be greatly appreciated!

Thank you in advance,
