Description of problem:
inside screen user can't type Ã¥Ã¤Ã¶ÃÃÃ, it prints garbage instead. This happens
with running screen in gnome-terminal with iso-8859-1 or -15 charset, but works
nicely with utf-8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch gnome-terminal, switch to iso-8859-1 or -15
2. type Ã¥Ã¤Ã¶ÃÃÃ
IMO a blocker bug; renders screen unusable
Typing Ã¥Ã¤Ã¶ÃÃÃ _outside_ screen with same gnome-terminal (and it's settings
including charset) works nicely.
Please provide additional debugging information if required.

(sorry for the dupes, Bugzilla has a bug that caused it to give internal server
error, and I didn't realize the inserted the bugs into the database anyway)
Works for me in FC3. I suppose you set right encoding for screen, right? As
in, if your gnome-terminal is iso-8859-1, you should run
LC_ALL=en_US.iso-8859-1 screen (or analogous). The default settings is utf-8,
so if you have utf-8 set up in locale and something else in gnome-terminal,
it's pretty likely to break, yes (and that's actually not a bug IMO...). And
please next time be more careful with bugzilla, i received loads of mails
(sorry about the mailflood again, I have notified the bugzilla admin about the bug)
It seems that I wasn't aware I should be setting LC_ALL manually, as it seems to
work without outside screen.
After setting LC_ALL=en_US.iso-8859-1 I get the characters correctly inside
screen too. There seems to be still some issues in Irssi, but that's
out-of-topic here. :)
So, I'll close this as NOTABUG as it was an illegal user error. ;)
