Comment (by smalldust):

 I think the problem is not whether wordpress should be 100% UTF-8, but
 wordpress MUST tell MySQL which encoding it is using.

 The problem now is, system variable "character_set_client" is set to
 "latin1" defaultly, but the characters wordpress is writing into database
 are not in latin1, but in UTF-8. This results in that the UTF-8 characters
 are considers as latin1, and are converted to UTF-8 again.
