I tested this on Valhalla-re0417.1
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2002-04-18 23:42:38 EDT
Nalin, I think you made this change the other day to let non UTF-8 strings to be
treated as UTF8 by gtk2.  Any ideas here?  This seems pretty bad.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2002-04-19 00:03:57 EDT
Nalin has a fix for this in CVS now.  The package is rebuilding at the moment.
Comment 4 Brent Fox 2002-04-19 09:11:15 EDT
Should be fixed in redhat-config-users-1.0.1-5.noarch.rpm.  Thanks for your report.
