    [ The following text is in the "ISO-8859-1" character set. ]
    [ Your display is set for the "ISO-8859-10" character set.  ]
    [ Some special characters may be displayed incorrectly. ]

Sorry I didn't see this early enough.
Two things can be done in such a case:
- Trying to fix db with an apropriate program (python, perl etc). Takes 
a long time and you might run in to problems latter.
- Delete just the 'sge_job' file (after a db dump and copying the whole 
directory). You will lose all job information but not the  configuration.

Sorry that I couldn't help in that case.
