Description of problem:
If the LANG environment VAR is set up as "pt_BR.UTF-8" at /etc/sysconfig/i18n,
as done by the installer, many accented characters appear under sawfish as
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Limbo and choose a language (such as pt_BR) which has accented characters
2.Check /etc/sysconfig/i18n to see if the ".UTF-8" was appended to the country
3.Log in to sawfish and observe chars in international messages.
Actual Results: The messages get corrupted, shere every accented character
appear as a "double char" (possibly its UNICODE byte pair).
Expected Results: Accented chars should (possibly) appear right, or LANG=pt_BR
should be used instead of LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8
This happened also on RHL 7.3. Maybe the UTF-8 scheme is inappropriate for
accented chars, or maybe its just the case of adjusting things.
