Description Ding-Yi Chen 2009-10-07 20:21:00 EDT
Description of problem:
zsh older than 4.3.1 does not handle  the inputting utf8 string properly.
Thus the inputting utf8 string looks messy.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. In gnome-terminal, with zsh as current shell.
2. copy the string "中文" (chinese)
3. past in zsh
Actual results:
The screen showing the string 中�^�^  

Expected results:
The screen showing the string 中文

Additional info:
I've also built and tried zsh-4.3.10 in RHEL5, it works for me.
So maybe you can consider upgrade the zsh.
Comment 1 James Antill 2009-10-08 00:05:10 EDT
This is unlikely to be added, as it's such a big change and would likely break something.
Comment 2 Ding-Yi Chen 2009-10-08 19:36:58 EDT
That's why I seek professional opinion.  :-)

After your investigation, if you still feel that the upgrade is inappropriate, though it is a pity, I understand.
Comment 3 Jan Zeleny 2013-03-26 11:43:02 EDT
As James indicated in comment 1, this is rather big change and it has potential to break things. Since we are now in very late stage of RHEL5 development cycle, this is unacceptable. I'm sorry but I have to close the bug, it won't be addressed in RHEL5.
