Description of problem:
Using locales other then US, messages are truncated whenever an accented
character is encountered.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select a locale that has lots of accented characters (pt_BR in my case)
2.Run redhat-config-nfs (this happen on many other tools also)
3.Use the program and verify that whenever there is a message with accented
characters it gets truncated from that point on
Actual Results: Messages with accented characters appear truncated beginning at
the accented char.
Expected Results: Messages should appear correctly with this new UTF-8 font scheme.
This happen in other programs as well. In some cases, the accented character
gets substituted for a "double char" character, usually beginning with the
upcase "A-tilde" char: C
I think the translator for pt_BR has converted the po file to UTF-8 a few weeks
ago, but after you filed this report. I did a little investigation, and there
were still a few po files that were non-UTF-8, which I just converted to UTF-8.
Should be fixed with 0.9.9-2.
QA, please verify.
Fix confirmed with redhat-config-nfs-0.9.9-5 and LANG=pt_BR
