Description of problem:
Having enabled keyboard layouts and chosen Greek, I get weird
characters which resemble Arabic but are not, and are certainly not
Greek. The error is not consistent through applications.
For instance, typing abgdezhu in the body of a Mozilla mail
composition window (composition charset: UTF-8) results in correct
Greek "αβγδεζηθ". Typing the
same in the subject field gives weird characters instead. Kate
produces garbage in its editing pane, but correct Greek in its command
line pane. Openoffice works correctly, evolution not at all.
I'm not at all sure kde is to blame for this, I'm filing it against it
in lack of better suspects.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable multiple keyboard layouts, including Greek
2. Choose Greek keyboard
3. Type in various applications
Actual Results: Garbage more often than not
Expected Results: Greek
