I spoke too quickly.  Yes, I do, as it is the default option.  I'm
just so habituated to hitting OK without even thinking about it, that
it's psychologically invisible to me.

I played another game as Catalan and reproduced the error.
1) Load the attached game catalan-1400.sav.
2) play as Catalan
3) hit Turn Done, since the settler doesn't have any moves remaining
4) build the Settler.  The "What should we call our new city?"
dialogue box appears.  It contains the garbled string "Perpiny[X]".
5) Selecting OK will crash the game.

So, the name generator is somehow at fault, and it is specific to utf8
chars at the end of the string.

Brazilian, in the middle, no problem.  Didn't try Turk or at the
beginning of the city name.

Didn't bother to try it.

No problem here.
