Why not catch the exception and print it out to find out?

Probably the conversion of utf-8 to the locale encoding done behind the
scenes by the overloaded operator<<() for Glib::ustring is throwing.
That in turn could be because the the input string is not in utf-8, or
because you have not called std::locale::global(std::locale("")) to set
the locale.

More generally, unless you want to manipulate utf-8 in your strings by
using Glib::ustring's specific utf-8 reliant methods, you are better off
avoiding problems like this by using std::string.  More specifically,
if you do want to use utf-8 reliant methods but done want conversion to
occur with operator <<(), then do:

std::cout << "DB - Password: " << password.raw() << std::endl;
