Description of Problem:

gnumeric-1.0.9-2 has problems showing fxe from excel workbooks. It truncates any
8-bit chars in norwegian when running with the default locale. Running with
LC_ALL=no_NO "fixes" it.

This is much more likely to get fixed if also filed on bugzilla.gnome.org

(Even better, ideally gnumeric 2 will be out by our next release.)
Comment 2 Kjartan Maraas 2002-10-09 18:01:46 EDT
Heh. Obviously bugzilla has problems with 8-bit chars too. Anyway, I don't think
that making gnumeric utf8 aware is going to happen in 1.0.x. Any other ways to
"fix" this for 8.0? Maybe making a FAQ with these kinds of things would be good?
On the other hand, some of the "legacy" gtk apps seem to have been fixed before
the release if I remember correctly - or maybe that was just the strings in the gui?
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2002-10-09 18:58:35 EDT
I don't really know how hard it would be to fix - maybe it's simple and Jody
could patch it up easily, maybe it's just a bug to be documented... hard to know.

I think it's fair to say if upstream fixes this it will be fixed, 
otherwise no, so let's just move it to gnome.org.

Upstream as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=103298
