phpMyAdmin problem with pma_reloadnavigation for Japanese

Hi all,

I've upgraded to MySQL 4.1 (from 4.0) and have noticed no problems in the past 24 hours since the upgrade.

However, phpMyAdmin, when trying to select "Japanese" from the language dropdown, I get the following error message and nothing else on the page:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function: pma_reloadnavigation() in /usr/local/cpanel/base/3rdparty/phpMyAdmin/ on line 132
I don't get this error for any other languages. Works for chinese, korean, English, etc.

I imagine it's related to multi-byte functionality either in PHP or mysql or phpMyAdmin itself. This error did not occur prior to the upgrade to mysql 4.1. My client (who speaks japanese) says he is able to still work with the data via his own PHP scripts. So the problem is only evident in phpMyAdmin. I'm stumped as to why it's happening though.

Has anyone encountered this before or have any idea what might be wrong? I did some googling for the error and only got a few hits in non-english forums.

Running Linux CentOS 3.3, php 4.3.10, MySQL 4.1 ....

Thanks in advance for any help.
