I would like to narrow the problem down. In your screenshot you've very nicely
called out the problem. 

The same date information is shown in the "browser list" at the top of the
screen in the date column. The only difference is the string is rendered by two
differnt libraries.

Is the date rendered in the date column at the top correct?

The date in the "Date" column in the list pane of the setroubleshoot browser is OK.

I will add a screen shot with what is OK and what is garbled.

Thank you for taking the time reporting this and your gracious help in preparing
the screenshots, it helped me.

Fixed. Should appear in the next release which I'm anticipating as 1.9.8

From the changelog:

Actually the entire detail view (rendered as HTML) had the wrong
encoding, since we did not explicitly set it to UTF-8 it defaulted to 
the default HTML charset ISO-8859-1. We now include an HTML header in
the HTML document and set the meta http-equiv="Content-Type" in the
HTML document header to specify the UTF-8 charset.

Thanx John for the quick fix.

Kind regards:
