City names with accented letters in them get truncated (when displayed;
savegames are fine) just before the first accented letter. For example,
'København' becomes 'K' and 'Århus' becomes '' (empty string; at least that's
what it looks like). Trying to change the city name sometimes crashes the client
with something like this:

civclient (pid:17002): ** CRITICAL **: file pango-layout.c: line 1707
(pango_layout_get_cursor_pos): assertion `index >= 0 && index <= layout->length'

I also get many warnings during gameplay like these:

civclient (pid:17002): ** WARNING **: Invalid UTF8 string passed to


civclient (pid:17002): Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtktextbuffer.c: line 476
(gtk_text_buffer_emit_insert): assertion `g_utf8_validate (text, len, NULL)'

Could this be a bug in freeciv, or in pango?

Locale is unset (which means 'C' locale is used, right?). Pango and GTK+2
versions are 1.0.0-5 and 2.0.0-2, respectively. Freeciv version is CVS tarball
of March 25.
