Hello,

I encountered a problem which makes it impossible to use some
programs that depend on an ability to retrieve window title:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
mikolaj@xxx ~ $ xwininfo

xwininfo: Please select the window about which you
          would like information by clicking the
          mouse in that window.

xwininfo: Window id: 0x2400068 " (failure in conversion from
UTF8_STRING to ANSI_X3.4-1968)"

Try running xwininfo in a UTF8-capable locale.  "C" isn't going to do
it.


You are right, somehow LANG was not set at all upon login. Thanks.


Regards,

Mikolaj Paraniak
