xemacs does not properly switch to the encoding specified by the locale
Last modified: 2015-01-07 18:59:20 EST
Description of Problem:
When the current locale specifies an UTF-8 encoding xemacs doesn't properly
detect this change, and opens file in iso-8859-1 mode instead.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. Make sure you are in an UTF-8 locale
1. enter some non-ascii char in a file, with for example 'vim'
2. open the file in xemacs
The file will be opened with iso-8859-1 encoding instead of utf-8 encoding.
Fixed in 21.4.8-14
