Another note - indeed it is surely the player (leader) name that is 
causing the problem.  Polish has a few latin-based characters that 
aren't available in the latin1 charset, particularly the crossed-l that 
appears to be used in a lot of their leader names.  This *should* be 
transliterated easily into a simple l but last I checked glibc's iconv 
does not do transliteration (if you use libiconv, a separate library, it 

It's possible freeciv's handling of this failed case should be better. 
If we can't transliterate we should just write the semi-garbage 
characters to the command line anyway no doubt.  The bug then becomes 
fairly minor.
