Description of problem:
When I try to create new folder or file with norwegian letters in
Nautilus, I' not allowed to.

The same applies if I try to save a file with norwegian letters in

My Fedora setup is all Norwegian (menues etc)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Nautilus choose "Fil - Opprett mappe" English: "File - New
folder" I guess
2. Change the folder name to a name with norwegian letters, ie. "Pr�ve"
3. Error message appears (Could not change name ...)

Actual Results:  Error message appears telling me that the name could
not be changed

Expected Results:  The folder should be renamed to "Pr�ve"

By the way: It should be possible the give the name right after "File
- New folder". It should not be necessary to rename.

What encoding are you using for filenames. I.E. What locale are you
using, and have you set G_BROKEN_FILENAMES or something like that.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
current Fedora release please reopen this bug and assign it to the corresponding
