It might be bug that there *is* conversion to ISO-8859-1.
I though that this conversion cannot be internal encoding -> local
encoding thing. Commandline should be UTF8. It is possible that it's
not set at all in the actual Freeciv server environment launched from
Found two uses for ISO-8869-1 in Freeciv 2.1 codebase.
1) data encoding
2) fallback local encoding
/* HACK: use latin1 instead of ascii in typical cases when the
* encoding is unconfigured. */
local_encoding = "ISO-8859-1";
Latter probably explains my problem.
Should we change this fallback to UTF-8 for 2.2 (S2_2) or 2.3 (TRUNK)?
