UTF8 problem in bugzilla 2.23.2

Hello all,

i have bugzilla running under win2003 and mysql 4.1 database. I take 
some random error in some pages. the main problem although is that i 
have problems with Greek characters.

i added a new product both the title and the description written in 
Greek. Although i can i see the description correctly, i couldn't see 
the product title. When i view the html source code i noticed that the 
UTF8 characters in the description text box were correctly displayed as 
ex. &965;&966; etc. the characters in title text box were displayed as 
&965;&966;. For an unknown reason the initial '&' were 
transformed to '&' which is not correct in displaying characters.

you may have hit a bug in Bugzilla. This looks like escaping once too
often. Please file a bug if there isn't already one about this.

   Kind regards

ok i think i found a solution, i checked the setting in this version and 
found a check box weather to use UTF8 characters in all pages or not. i 
changed it to use and the problem disappeared.

Not in common with the previous but i receive this error while trying to 
add a new bug :

Undefined subroutine &Bugzilla::Component::check_component called at 
/bugzilla/post_bug.cgi line 145.

has anyone noticed that before?
