Hi!  Sorry for long delay on this, I only now had time to look into it.

Right now, libgsasl digest-md5 server will convert incoming usernames
from latin-1 to utf-8 when needed (i.e., when charset=utf-8 is not
present).  Passwords will be converted from UTF-8 to Latin-1 when needed
too (i.e., when the can be expressed in the Latin-1 encoding).

What indeed appears to be missing is to convert realm from latin-1 to
utf-8 when charset=utf-8 is not present from the client.

I have installed the patch below.  If you can test this, I'd very much
appreciate it!  It is a corner case that may be not be visible in the
real-world much.
