Topic: Users with ID<255 can't see everything, including Adminisrtators

Now using v1.3.4, but same in 1.4.2

We got a big problem and that is that all users under the ID=255 can't see some posts in the forums.
It looks like this:
As you can see there's nothing between the amount of pages, it just show the top and bottom page amount or there would be plenty of rows.
A few of these 34 pages in this particular sub forum will show the posts and this seems to be happening only in the first forum in the first category.

A non registered user will see everything and so will all users with ID=255 and higher.

Any idea what this can be?
There's no way we can force 254 users to re-register.

We also hoped that this would work after upgrading to 1.4.2 but same stuff happened there, so it can't just be related to 1.3.x

No specific error found in http_error.log
Is there anywhere else I look for errors? somewhere I can change the log level?
This is on my own Linux test server so I can get any php/httpd/etc logs.

No errors so far but I tested the queries that I saw and those who did not produce an output in the forum still got the correct answer from the database.
I'll see if I can put more DebugCode in there to detect the error.

... or if someone already knows what the error is smile

I must have got the exact "right" users 'cos all this problems had to do with bad translations to Swedish using utf8. (or NOT utf8 really)
I had big problems with the Swedish Language before so I had to rewrite many translations (but didn't think of this one)

This last problem was all due to the small dot in front of the thread you posted in.
(Display a dot in front of topics to indicate to a user that they have posted in that topic earlier. Disable if you are experiencing high server load)

This dot was not a utf8 standard so that made this error happen whenever it was on some of those page's items.
I changed that now to a '&#x2328' and that is the 'keyboard', also had to do a little fiddling in Oxygen.css so it would fit.

CASE CLOSED big_smile big_smile

UPDATE: Can't use that either, cos it seems that all browsers don't use the same utf8 standard.
OK in FF, too big in Chrome and in IE(unknown version) just the HexaDecimal values.
utf8 has been "online" since forever and still they can't handle it correctly.
