Expected results:
Should start up without problems

Additional info:
I think there is no support in the X Motif toolkit for UTF-8, so likely
this can only be fixed by changing the CJK menubar to use a different toolkit.

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-04-17 12:52:14 UTC
Actually the menubar is using the Lucid toolkit not Motif, but it
may not support utf-8 either.

Disabling the ja and ko menubar translations in xemacs-21.4.12-8.
