Description Josh Bressers 2005-06-06 21:57:39 EDT
It is possible to crash gaim by sending a file transfer of a file with a file name
with some character sets.  notably, the test case used was a file with an
italian a with accent over it.

Seems like we aren't converting the incoming file names to utf-8 correctly.
