Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 16222
LC_CTYPE from enviroment is ignored,
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:57 EDT
the LC_CTYPE locale setting is not imported from the enviroment. This leads
to ugly translations of characters in different charsets than US-ASCII.
For example in swedish (test with LANG=sv) all occurances of e is
translated to aa and so forth. I will include a patch solve the problem
Created attachment 2496 [details]
a patch that fixes the problem
This will be fixed in gnupg-1.0.2-2. Thanks!
sorry to come with bad news, but i had an email discussion with Werner Koch
and he notified me that some function calls in the gnupg source depend on the
being set to C (notably isalpha() and friends). I will work to get a better
patch and come back to
Aaargh. Reverting the patch.
Hm. Now the 1.0.4 RPMs contain the following patch:
- #ifdef HAVE_LC_MESSAGES
- setlocale( LC_TIME, "" );
- setlocale( LC_MESSAGES, "" );
- setlocale( LC_ALL, "" );
bindtextdomain( PACKAGE, G10_LOCALEDIR );
textdomain( PACKAGE );
+ setlocale( LC_ALL, "" );
Is that really correct/needed? Nalin, could you please shed some light what the
effect of that change is? Is it a RH-only abnormally? If not, why did Werner not
fix this since 1.0.2?
BTW: does Werner know about the strlen fix?
- && !strcmp(fname+strlen(defhome+1)-strlen(defhome+1),
+ && !strcmp(fname+strlen(fname)-strlen(defhome+1),

Just double-checked my sent-mail folder. We sent the patch to firstname.lastname@example.org on
10/19, so yes, it should show up in a forthcoming release.
