Description Zack Cerza 2005-10-31 17:15:58 EST
Description of problem:
popt causes python to spit out a traceback when gettext.dgettext() is called on
its domain for any value in certain locales.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Always, with python. Other languages were not attempted.

Steps to Reproduce:
% LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 python -c "import gettext; gettext.dgettext('popt', 'foo')"

Try the same with es_ES(.UTF-8), zh_CN(.UTF-8), and others. It works with
fr_FR(.UTF-8) and en_US(.UTF-8).
Actual results:
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<string>", line 1, in ?
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/gettext.py", line 517, in dgettext
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/gettext.py", line 465, in translation
    t = _translations.setdefault(key, class_(open(mofile, 'rb')))
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/gettext.py", line 177, in __init__
  File "/usr/lib64/python2.4/gettext.py", line 324, in _parse
    tmsg = unicode(tmsg, self._charset)
LookupError: unknown encoding: CHARSET

Expected results:
command returns 0.

Paul, I see you put the bug in MODIFIED, but there's no popt update yet. Coming
