Description Stefan Ekman 2002-10-16 16:51:10 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When chatting in ICQ, ä &ouml, 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):

How reproducible:

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
when sent.

Expected Results:  Our local characters showed as expected.

Additional info:

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.
Comment 1 Christopher Blizzard 2002-11-11 13:46:14 EST
More likely it's a problem with using a gtk1.2 based application.
Comment 2 Stefan Ekman 2002-11-29 05:47:48 EST
If I set LANG to sv_SE instead of the default sv_SE.utf8 it works as expected.
Comment 3 Warren Togami 2004-03-17 02:44:58 EST
This should also be fine in the newer gtk2 gaim.  In any case RH8 has
hit end of life, so closing.
