...and when using iso8859-2 this even leads to a crach. See:

Is this even really virt-manager related? Any segfault would have to be at the C level, so my guess is this is a gtk, glade, or some other library issue. Truthfully I'm not to savvy on this stuff so I wouldn't even know what to do in the first place.

Closing as CANTFIX, but please reopen if you think this is something defficient with virt-manager.
