I recently installed pinstripe on my main computer and I noticed some "non
lethal bugs".

I set the local to french (LANG=fr, LC_ALL=fr, LANGUAGE=fr, etc). I noticed
that all the accents are replaced by "?".

The error message seems to be: Gdk-WARNING ** : locale not supported by C

Is it possible to do something?

The C library doesn't have a fr locale. It only has locales
fr_FR, fr_CA, fr_BE, and so forth. So you need to select one 
of these locales.

It works fine!
