Description of problem:
When chatting in ICQ, ä ö, å are sent as multibyte sequences to
other clients (Mirabilis ICQ) and not viewed correctly. The same characters are
stripped when recieved from ICQ.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Chat in with ICQ user
2.Write a text containing umlauted characters.
3.Ask other user to write umlauted characters
Actual Results: Stripped characters when recieved. Multibyte shown incorrectly
Expected Results: Our local characters showed as expected.
I have submitted a similair bug to the Gimp package. So perhaps this is a more
deepgoing problem with RH8 using multibyte representation as standard.
More likely it's a problem with using a gtk1.2 based application.
If I set LANG to sv_SE instead of the default sv_SE.utf8 it works as expected.
This should also be fine in the newer gtk2 gaim. In any case RH8 has
hit end of life, so closing.
