Description of problem:
While trying to submit bug 177843, I get an internal server error.
The bug is still created, but the bug comments are not there.
Appending the bug comments to the bug works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at bug 177843.
2. Try to create a new bug which is exactly the same as this.
3. Internal server error.
I have no idea if this is needs a severity of "security".

Bugzilla isn't utf-8 aware!
If the summary contains e.g. an umlaut, the bug is not entered.
If the bug comments contain an umlaut, the bug is entered, but without the bug
(Is a bug entry not one transaction?)
Was the bug entered with the guided or expert interface?
This is still broken. Should this be marked as security severity?
It seems like the application has not been written to handle non-ascii characters.
Fedora People blogs are complaining a lot about bug reporters setting the status
of bugs to NEEDINFO, with the NEEDINFO being from the package maintainer.
Please can I have some feedback on this?

So much for open source. There was nothing "open" about this bug at all.
Complete silence from the assignee.
Well, it works for summary lines now. See bug 230337.
Also for descriptions. See bug 230338.
