Description Nicolas Mailhot 2003-05-31 15:18:07 EDT

Error messages :

(evolution:5736): camel-WARNING **: Encountered Windows charset parading as
(evolution:5736): camel-WARNING **: Cannot convert from 'windows-cp1252' to
'UTF-8': Chaîne multi-octets ou étendue de caractères invalide ou incomplète
(evolution:5736): camel-WARNING **: Storing text as raw, unknown charset
'windows-cp1252' or invalid format

(saw this while running evo from a term - it crashes every other minute today
but I suspect another bit of RawHide is causing crashes)
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-05-31 18:58:20 EDT
The mail you received had a very bogus charset... it said it was iso8859-1, but
had some of the weird Windows charset characters, so the best guess is cp1252,
which wasn't quite right either and so it couldn't be converted to a canonical
utf-8 form.  Not much that can be done.  If you have a specific message that
causes it, file it upstream at bugzilla.ximian.com and more workarounds might be

No problem. I just noticed it while searching for something else, and do not
actually care about it.
