Description Göran Uddeborg 2002-10-11 17:48:30 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
If an error occurs for a file where the path contains non-UTF8 characters, the
error message doesn't correctly show the path.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use a Latin 1 locale:
  23:43 uebn> printenv LANG
  23:43 uebn> printenv G_BROKEN_FILENAMES 
2.Create a file which contains a non-UTF non-ASCII character, which is  not a
correct picture.  The character between "g" and "r" below is o-diaeresis, though
I think bugzilla destroys that sometimes:
  touch gvran.png
3.eog gvran.png

Actual Results:  The error message just names the part "file:///tmp/g", the
remainder is truncated.

I forgot to say: there could be some connection to bug 75759.  They look
different to me, so I reported them separately.  But I don't know the internals.

Will get a fix from upstream, closing on Red Hat level.
