Comment 1 Akira TAGOH 2003-10-21 11:55:46 UTC
because of kterm doesn't support UTF-8.

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-13 07:46:27 UTC
I'm closing this bug because we are going to support just one terminal
and we have decided to drop kterm from FC. If you found a bug on our
supported terminal(currently gnome-terminal), please feel free to file
a bug.
