I would double check that you are using a Unicode character set (utf8 or
utf16/ucs2). If the normal collation fails try a binary one.

The following script works for me in MySQL 5.1:
set names 'utf8';
drop database if exists testsearch;
create database testsearch character set 'utf8';
show variables like '%character%';
show variables like '%collation%';
-- the following create statements all allow the insert to occur
create table mm (mykey varchar(128) primary key);
-- create table mm (mykey varchar(128) primary key) collate utf8_unicode_ci;
-- create table mm (mykey varchar(128) primary key) collate utf8_general_ci;
-- create table mm (mykey varchar(128) primary key ) collate utf8_bin;
show create table mm;
insert into mm (mykey) values ('ကု'), ('ကို'), ('ကြ'), ('ကျ');
select * from mm where mykey = 'ကု';
select * from mm where mykey = 'ကို';
select * from mm where mykey = 'ကျ';
select * from mm where mykey = 'ကြ';
select * from mm where mykey like '%ကျ%';
In the my.cnf configuration file you can set the defaults:
The current version of mysql doesn't collate Myanmar correctly, but you
can use it for storing Myanmar Unicode.
