Description Richard Hult 2002-07-06 21:51:18 UTC
Description of Problem:

The switch to UTF-8 locales have broken xchat completely, at least when choosing
Swedish as default language.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose Swedish during installation 
2. Start xchat
3. Join a channel and type Swedish characters (edv) while looking at the same
channel with another client, say using Red Hat 7.3, where you will notice that
the Swedish characters will be displayed as raw UTF-8 in ASCII. Also if other
people use Swedish characters, they are not displayed at all in the limbo client.

the same applies for german characters.

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-06 06:30:38 UTC
Please supply your /etc/sysconfig/i18n file

Defering for future release.

Comment 5 Richard Hult 2002-08-19 20:33:24 UTC
Hm, does this mean that non-english speaking people won't be able to use IRC on
the next release?

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-01 06:29:34 UTC
At the time I first received this bug report, I wasn't exactly sure
_what_ the issues were.  Fortunately... now I am.  There have been
various bug reports similar in nature to this one, and I've created
a master bug to close duplicates against.   Rather than re-iterate
all of it in every bug report, I'm going to close this as a duplicate
of the master bug.  For detailed answer, please read that bug report,
as well as any duplicates of it for the official full details.
