Description of problem:
When openening a OO document with German "Umlauts" in it's name (by using nautilus with double clicking), the OO shows the umlauts in the document's name in the OO window's title bar in weird manner. The document's name was "Ich hatt ein Vöglein.odt"

I'm betting that its not a UTF-8 locale

I see it with
. Also, opening from recent documents doesn't work for such document.
shows the titelbar and the document itself correct.
This is a standard f14 installation (no tricks) with german keyboard, and in OO, language is set to german (currency set to german/euro). I think, I should remove the line "LC_ALL=C" from my ~/.bashrc

The same .bashrc line *with* "LC_ALL=C" worked properly in F13 together with OO!
Yeah, "C" is a terribly idea if you have files with non-ascii filenames floating about.
Fixing title bar fix is easy, recently-used not quite so trivial
I think, I can live with en empty LC_ALL :-)
Suggested a patch upstream. Won't fix this in Fedora. non-UTF8 locale settings are definitely un-recommended. Something like LC_ALL=en_US.utf8 might get the desired effect without clobbering utf8
LC_ALL=de_DE.utf8 does it too.
