 If there are error breaks WP, like upgrade files without update DB, WP
 will use "die" function to display the localized error message, but this
 will display the message without selecting charset, so browsers will try
 to guess the right charset but they will filed, FireFox for example will
 display Arabic messages using Cyrillic charset!

 WP_Die function display errors in nice page and set charset to UTF-8 in
 both HTTP and HTML headers, it's modify copy of "bail" function in wp-
 db.php which display DB errors.

 To test the patch apply it and change $wp_db_version then go to admin.
