[EP-tech] Diacritics truncate input form fields

I haven't noticed this on 3.3.10.
It's strange that it only happens sometimes - if it was all the time, I would check the encoding used for the database tables, and whether the EPrints->MySQL connection was using UTF8.
What encoding is the web page in?
Are there specific characters that break things (we do sometimes see issues with characters pasted from PDFs - like the 'fi' ligature - which isn't UTF-8 encoded in the PDF, and is an invalid character to paste into the field).

Subject: [EP-tech] Diacritics truncate input form fields
we are on eprints 3.3.10.
We noticed that sometimes input form fields with diacritics are truncated after
The effect is :
a) I'm modifying a field of a record.
b) when i click on save, the record is updated but ALL record fields with
diacritics are truncated exactly before the first diacritic, also if they are
Obviously this weird problems happens only sometimes: It happened to me
yesterday on a record, i recovered it from backup (batch import), i modified
again the same record, and the second time all went well ...
Anyone has noticed this problem ?
