The database isn't corrupt - I introduced a bug in Flint shortly before
creating the UTF-8 branch, and fixed it in HEAD but not the branch.

I don't think there's an easy workaround, other than to use Quartz
instead.  Probably the simplest fix is for me to merge changes from
HEAD onto the branch, as I'll need to do that at some point anyway.
