Description

20 years ago
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.

Change QA contact to myself.
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.
