Description of problem:
In "sol" from gnome-games (also called "AisleRiot 2.16.0"), an error pops up when selecting some of the rules when using ru_RU.UTF-8 or other non-english locale. Also help on rules doesn't work when name of the game is translated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run sol in ru_RU.UTF-8 locale.
2. Open rules chooser: "Игра" -> "Выбор игры"
3. Select "Афина", "Десять поперек" or "Клондайк" (also happens with a few others, not with all though).
1. Select any rules (still in ru_RU.UTF-8)
2. Select rules help: "Справка" -> (name of the rules)
Bug 1: An error pops up, saying something about "error while saving/loading configuration information for aisleriot", without any additional information.
Bug 2: "can't open section" error pops up and empty help window opens.
1: No error
2: Correct page with (usually unlocalized) rules description
This isn't unique to ru_RU.UTF-8 locale, I tried a few others, for example ja_JP.eucJP. I guess it happens for every locale where rules names are localized, i.e. virtually any except for French (French help is the only localized one).
This bug is new. It has been some time since I ran sol, but I remember that a few years ago it worked correctly. Maybe it's broken since gnome-games 2.16 or 2.14.
This bug has been fixed in gnome-games 2.16.2.
