mysqli_set_charset($sqllink,"greek") is working perfectly on php-5.5.x but not on php-5.6.x

for example:
with php-5.5.17 i get "ΠΑΥΛΟΣ" (which is correct) but 
with php-5.6.1  i get "������"

Please provide a complete test script including hexdump of your greek string (i.e. for ($i = 0; $i < strlen($greek_string); ++$i) { printf(" 0x%x", $greek_string[$i]); })

PLease also provide the client api being used for both your PHP versions (see phpinfo() mysqli section) as well as the server version you are connecting to.
