Oh, sorry.  -C must have been added after 0.61.  That's OK; it would just

TDSDUMP is your friend here.  The first few lines of the log will tell you

If you run a trivial query selecting a few accented characters and post your
log file (be advised it includes your password), we should be able to nail
it down.
