Description Igor Gnatenko 2013-05-23 14:44:36 EDT
Description of problem:
g_strescape() is useless since it mangles UTF-8. We should
include a less aggressive escaping function.

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

Actual results:
g_strescape not correctly working with UTF8 strings

Expected results:
Implemented g_utf8_strescape

Additional info:
Of this bug depends encoding problems in empathy.

Work is being done in GNOME BZ, but I need help from other developers.

Closing the ticket; Empathy has a fix for the escaping issue and the glib new API addition is being tracked upstream.
