I just added a ticket to trac explaining this issue. Hopefully I added  
it correctly. :)

> I just discovered that the upload form supports IPTC tags for the  
> Title and Description fields. That's really great.
> But it seems like the function assumes the tags are in ISO 8859-1,  
> even though both the actual IPTC tags and WP is set to UTF-8.
> When using Adobe Bridge or Mac OS X to set the tags they get encoded  
> as UTF-8, and therefore gets corrupted when uploaded to WP.
> Is this intentional, or a bug? Can I change this somewhere?
