            Bug ID: 344413
           Summary: DAV resource sends password encoded as Latin1
           Product: kdepimlibs
           Version: 4.14.2
          Platform: Debian unstable
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: akonadi

I've been trying to configure a DAV resource with Kontact that connects to an
ownCloud server without success.

I figured out from inspecting the logs on the server that the password (which
contains non-ASCII characters) is being transmitted encoded as Latin1, while
the server expects UTF-8.

For what it's worth, Kmail works fine with the same password.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a CardDAV or CalDAV account on a server that uses a password with
non-ASCII characters.
2. Try to add this account in Kontact/KAddressBook

Actual Results:  
The CardDAV/CalDAV resource will fail to authenticate with the server, even
though the password is correct, because of character encoding issues.

Expected Results:  
The CardDAV/CalDAV resource authenticates correctly.
