PayPal IPN encoding

Issue #1267 resolved

PayPal will by default send an IPN call encoded as cp-1252 which will break when the payment module calls PayPal again in utf-8 and there are special characters in the call.

The solution is to login to PayPal and change the website encoding of your account on PayPal to utf-8 in your profile settings (bottom right link on the profile page).
