[Lazarus] Encoding with SDF dataset

when trying to us a TSdfDataset connected to a TDatasource and a
TDBGrid, only some unicode symbols are shown (those little squares
holding four tiny numbers) for string data.

The data files are encoded iso-8859 but I have found no switch for
setting the encoding of TDataSource or TSdfDataset. When loading a
TFileStream is used, but I did not find a property or method for
changing the encoding on the fly in it, either.

How can I fix it?
