Books: Merlin.pl plugin uses wrong encoding (probably easy fix)

Here's something that was faulty for a long time. The merlin.pl plugin works fine with ISBN searches, though it returns wrong encoding entries, which makes all Polish diacritics go mad.

Background: Windows XP, version 1.6.1 (though the problem persists in Ubuntu as well, can't check the version right now though).

Replication: Search for, for instance, for ISBN: 978-83-7574-270-1. It returns the title "Białe noce" even though it should be "Białe noce". This creates another bug, the other way around: searching for Polish books by title won't work as you would have to enter "Białe noce" search term when looking for the book titled "Białe noce".
Cheers

BTW, I already filed this bug report before in April, but apparently it went unnoticed.

Why oh why is writing plugins for GCStar so complicated...

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
