Comment 1 Rosemarie Gazzia 2000-08-04 08:57:24 EDT
changing to lang=ja_JP.eucJP works............
Comment 2 Rosemarie Gazzia 2000-08-07 16:13:17 EDT
...but using ja_JP.eucJP, while allowing futher progress, results in garbage 
japanese characters in summary fields...
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2000-11-13 11:40:47 EST
Passed to QA to verify against Red Hat Linux 7.0J
Comment 4 Brock Organ 2000-11-14 16:51:32 EST
verified the behavior above (ja_JP.ujis is listed in our docs as a supported
value) ... thanks for your report!
Comment 5 Brock Organ 2000-11-14 16:54:38 EST
hmmm ... in case I wasn't clear above:

both 6.2J and 7.0J fails as described above (not just 6.2J) :)
Comment 6 Matt Wilson 2001-04-03 18:56:07 EDT
fixed in the docs of the next release.
