Description Daniel Resare 2002-08-11 17:26:24 EDT
Description of Problem:

The localized messages from for example /usr/sbin/useradd comes out with invalid
utf-8 sequences for all non-ascii characters. For example 

[noa@ulysses BUILD]$ /usr/sbin/useradd 
Anv�ndning: useradd     [-u uid [-o]] [-g grupp] [-G grupp,...] 

when it should instead say

"Anvdndning: useradd ..."

I believe this problem is related to the fact that the first message of sv.po is
marked as fuzzy, and therefore the gettext system doesn't get the information
that the incoming data is encoded in iso-8859-1, and assumes us-ascii or
something like it. Removing the fuzzy marking should fix the problem I believe. 

However I cannot test it since #71280 is blocking me
