Description Miloslav Trmac 2002-05-10 09:18:36 EDT
[reported also to bugs.kde.org]
Countries in the combo box (described below) are sorted using ASCII string 
comparison or something instead of locale-specified collation sequence.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set your locale to cs_CZ (or something other you can read which
places accented characters between unaccented Latin ones)
2.Run kaddressbook, create a new entry, push the Address button
3.Open the Country combo box. 

Actual Results:  The countries whose name starts with
an accented character (i.e. [using HTML notation because bugzilla will probably 
mangle it, etc.] Česká republika [Czech Republic]) are placed 
after all others.

Expected Results:  Česká republika is placed after countries 
whose name starts with C, but before countries with name starting with D, 
similarly for other countries.
