[New-bugs-announce] [issue1855] Codepage unset in msilib.init_database()

New submission from Jim Wilson:

Satanic Verses sayeth:  "The Codepage Summary property must be set
before any string properties are set in the summary information.", but
so far as I can tell, PID_CODEPAGE is never used in msilib.__init__.py,

Confirming evidence: msilib's GetProperty(msilib.PID_CODEPAGE) raises
"Not Implemented" on Python2.5.1's own .msi file.
