(Whiteboard: Checked in a fix)

As a first step towards fully multilingual menus on Linux, we need to support
the current locale by converting Unicode to the locale encoding before passing
the strings to the menu items.

I checked in a fix. To test this, you will need to set the locale on your Unix
box before invoking apprunner. For example:

  setenv LANG ja_JP.ujis

On RedHat 5.2, you also need the following RPMs installed:

  skewer:/builds/erik/libwcsmbs-0.0.4-SNAP.i386.rpm
  skewer:/builds/erik/wcsmbs-locale-ja-0.4.6-SNAP.i386.rpm

To use these, you also need to set the following:

  setenv LD_PRELOAD /lib/libwcsmbs.so

Sorry, but that's the current state of affairs on RedHat 5.2, our reference
platform.

This bug fix works fine for normal menu labels.
But the other menu labels which have sub-menus,
still display dot characters "." instead of Japanese characters.
I verified it on M7-06-15-08.
Therefore, I'll reopen this bug for remain issue.
