Description:
------------
Reading String Values containing special Chars (e.g. ????) from the $_POST-Array will result in having corrupt data.
Doing the same with $HTTP_POST_VARS works fine.

No, there are no mbstring settings enabled!
Should they?

[mbstring]
; internal/script encoding.
; Some encoding cannot work as internal encoding.
; (e.g. SJIS, BIG5, ISO-2022-*)
;mbstring.internal_encoding = EUC-JP

; http input encoding.
;mbstring.http_input = auto

; http output encoding. mb_output_handler must be
; registered as output buffer to function
;mbstring.http_output = SJIS

; automatic encoding detection order.
; auto means 
;mbstring.detect_order = auto

; substitute_character used when character cannot be converted
; one from another
;mbstring.substitute_character = none;

; overload(replace) single byte functions by mbstring functions.
; mail(), ereg(), etc are overloaded by mb_send_mail(), mb_ereg(),
; etc. 
;mbstring.func_overload = No
