Encoding of user input (Bug #524)

Yet another encoding problem from using ruby 1.9: rails 2.3.x considers user input as byte strings, in particular the content of the params hash, which yields an Encoding error every time an input string is concatenated to an existing string.

The fix described there fixed it for me, with the obvious change of 2.3.10 to 2.3.12.

Note: this fix assumes that the user wants to use UTF-8 as the default encoding, which I believe is a reasonable default.
