Build: 0102 trunk build on all platforms

1. After installation, launch profile manager.
2. Click on create new profile.
3. In the profile name field, type some ascii characters and non-ascii
characters as a profile name.

You will see the non-ascii characters will not get displayed in the locale file
path while ascii characters will be displayed correctly. 
- see a followed screen shot.

Another screen shot for Japanese at the beginning of the profile name

In this case, Japanese characters will display fine.

I know what is the problem, it depend on the keypress to update the content


 41 <textbox id="ProfileName" value="&pnl2.defaultPName.label;"

see what will happen if we change it to

 41 <textbox id="ProfileName" value="&pnl2.defaultPName.label;"

ok , we have two issue here.
1. if the system encoding (ACP on the window) cannot encode such character, we
won't show any character AFTER that character in the path. (yokoyama are looking
for a solution for this) 
2. if we could encode, we have the update timing issue. The timing is currently
depend onkeypress which do not include IME. We may need to change it to onkeyup.
I try this on my Win NT J. both chinese Global IME and native Japanese IME work.
We need to make sure it won't break the IME operation on Linux and Mac. Korean
failed because the reason 1. Not sure what will happen on the korean system

reassign this back to yokoyama. we should break this bug into two issue. One
deal with path name and one deal with updating from textbox.
add syd to the list. It seems other place IM also have such textbox sync issue.

> are you running on a Japanese platform or not?

Yes. I was running on JA WinXP.  ( saw it when type chinese on chinese windows also)
Actually, I saw same problem when try to type Chinese and high ascii single byte
characters on WinXP-JA too.

But I just found: this problem happens when you first commit the Japanese or
Chinese words, when you hit the enter again, the Japanese or Chinese characters
will get displayed.

I guess this bug was fixed. The filepath with characters not covered by the
current locale is a separate issue.

I think both roy and me are off mozilla for more than 2 years. If these bugs are
still here now, I think the real stauts is 'won't fix'. If you want to reopen
it, please find a new owner for it first.
