There are two problems with using the optdiag command in a Japanese environment:
(1) optdiag fails with a message "Can't get localized message." if the current locale is one of the Japanese locales.
(2) If a table has Japanese data and column histogram data contain Japanese characters, optdiag shows a 2403 error with the following message and Japanese multi-byte characters become question marks:
WARNING! Some character(s) could not be converted into client's character set. Unconverted bytes were changed to question marks ('?').
