I have tried to import my old trac database(mysql powered) to redmine, but I have failed.

In case of using UTF-8 as table charset and any other charset as 'character_set_server' on source mysql server import will broke all non-english characters.

But it works well(in my case) if option {:encondig => 'UTF8'} was added to option list on establish_connection in lib/tasks/migrate_from_trac.rb

It happends in both case trunc and 0.8.x branches.
