Description Bill Nottingham 2006-10-20 12:03:54 EDT
Description of problem:

python-urlgrabber appears to use strerror() from glibc; however, it
does escaping on error messages, so anything run in a non-en_US locale
can get mangled.

Example, using ja_JP:

Loading "installonlyn" plugin
Loading "rhnplugin" plugin
Repository 'workstation' is missing name in configuration, using id
Repository 'client' is missing name in configuration, using id
This system is not registered with RHN.
RHN support will be disabled.

data/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (-3,
Trying other mirror.
Error: Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: workstation

I vaguely remember another bug on this and after doing some poking through, it
seemed to be actually a python problem
