Fix positioning issues with multibyte characters in SQL executions
QScintilla counts characters for the index inside a line and number of
bytes for the global positions. When we use index we have to use text
lengths (number of characters) and when we use global position, we have to
convert previously to byte arrays. Otherwise offsets are produced in
executions containing non US-ASCII characters (accented letters, most
symbols, etc).

The bug could lead to final statements not executed by the execute-all
action, more than one line executed by the execute line action and
incorrect line references in the log.
