Bug #31880 SoapClient complains about string with umlauts.

Status: Not a bug Package: SOAP related

When I try to call a Soap-Method via SoapClient with any umlaut-containing string, soapclient complains that the string is not a valid utf8-encoded string.

It seems to differ from #29999,
which was a problem of libxml2.
I've upgraded libxml2 to cvs, the problem described in #29999 is fixed in my libxml2 so I think this should be a PHP-issue.

Reproduce code:
$client = new

$client->anyMethod("Benutzer hinzuf?gen");


Actual result:
Uncaught SoapFault exception: 
[SOAP-ENV:Client] SOAP-ERROR: Encoding: string 'Recht hinzuf?gen' is not a valid utf-8 string in /var/www/adition_gui/includes/classes/rpc.class.php:29 Stack trace: #0

Are you sure you're using UTF-8? Try if utf8_encode()ing 
the name of the method as proposed in the Exception.

Uhm, shouldn't this be done transparently by ext/soap like in every SOAP-Class I've used so far?
They all encode transparently on client-side and decode on server side. Or is this just working correctly in wsdl-mode?
If I am wrong, just mark as bogus and I'll find another way workin' around this.

No it doesn't do "transparent guessing" which encoding 
you've used.
