Item13474: CommentPlugin fails with Wide character print error for utf-8 comments.

How to reproduce

  • go to
  • try add some unicode comment, he result will be
    • the comment either accepted as latin1 ( for example for íéáéíáéíáíéáíé )
    • or e.g. for ľščžťýžáťčšľýľ will print a message:
Software error:

Wide character in print at /usr/home/ line 287.
but the comment is added into the topic.

tested on T.F.O and on the beta2 tarbal = acts differently.

  • On my local installation (1.2beta2-tarbal) it adds the utf8 comment, only when trying to add a comment what can be accepted as latin1 it accepts it as latin1. (e.g. íéáéíáéíáíéáíé) and of course, it is scrambled on the output).
  • on the trunk - see above - it prints software error.

raising this to urgent = act differently on FO and TFO and my local beta2 tarbal install.
