Build Identifier:

We have in our database a field defined with VARCHAR(5) and a chinese string "不要让早把" to be inserted.

If we insert the string with SQL insert everything works find, but if we try to insert via BULK monet throw an error.
I made several test and i need to extend the varchar from 5 to 10 to get the bulk insert working.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:

create table test.varcharsize5
id int,
varchar106 varchar(5),
primary key (id)

insert into test.varcharsize5 values (1,'不要让早把');

BULK Line to insert in a file:

COPY 10 RECORDS INTO test.varcharsize5 FROM '/root/test_varchar_chinois'
USING DELIMITERS ',','\n','"' NULL AS '\N' ;

Actual Results:

Failed to import table line 1 field 2 'varchar(5)' expected in '不要让早把'

Expected Results:

Should be insterted
