Description of problem:
I can type and send swedish characters but the other side only gets garbage. I
cannot recieve those characters either...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Gaim and send a msg with swedish characters
2. This looks as if it works, but (s)he recieves garbage instead of my letters
(see other screenshot)
3. Now ask a friend to send you some swedish characters
4. In gaim it doesn't even display garbage it displays nothing.
Actual Results: I don't get any swedish characters
(see the attached picture)
The msg from Christian should read:
inneheller grvt och dpple rdtt bokstdver?
Expected Results: Swedish characters should be displayed (e d and v) both on
his side and on my side. If gaim doesn't cut it then use gnomeicu which works...

Try the 0.59.1 build that's in rawhide and let me know if it helps. There were
some important i18n changes in that version.
Same error with gaim-0.59.1-0 from rawhide...
*aahem* gnomeice2 for gnome2 *aheem* ;)
gnomeicu I mean *hehehe*
It's possible this won't get fixed until we see a gnome2 version.
Not really fixed yet...
Fixed in Phoebe3
