Description Kriton Kyrimis 2012-04-11 02:08:19 EDT
Description of problem:
If I erroneously type a command in Greek, I get a strange error message.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:\
1. Start a Konsole or gnome-terminal window.
2. Set the encoding to ISO-8859-7.
3. Type or paste the Greek character α at the prompt, followed by a space.
4. Hit <enter>.
Actual results:
bash: α: command not found...
process 32328: arguments to dbus_message_iter_append_basic() were incorrect, assertion "_dbus_check_is_valid_utf8 (*string_p)" failed in file dbus-message.c line 2526.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.
  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace

Expected results:
bash: α: command not found...

Additional info:

I am running KDE.

If the terminal encoding is UTF-8, the error message does not appear.

The process id mentioned in the error message is not that of the shell and changes if I try again.

Thanks for the report. This message comes from command_not_found_handler from PackageKit-command-not-found package. Looks like it is incorrectly handling locales.
