I had filed a bug (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=157709) about this 
for gimp-perl a couple months ago and hadn't heard back, but I'm looking for 
some advice on how to further debug this issue as it may not even be gimp-perl 

When I call the following pdb function with any non-ascii character in my perl 

my $text_layer =   gimp_text_fontname($img,-1,0,0,"test string ", 0, TRUE, 14, 
0, "Arial");

The function simply fails, and returns the following error

"gimp_text_fontname: procedural database execution failed at ..."

With no more useful information.  Displaying the stack trace doesn't give me 
any additional useful information as well.  "gimp_text_get_extents_fontname" 
gives a similar error with a non-ascii character, but another pdb function I 
found that generates text - "script_fu_newsprint_text" actually seems to 
succeed as it returns no error. Incidentally, I've experimented with different 
fonts and characters, and can only comment that these characters were not 
causing an error with Gimp 1.2.  (I've tested this on Gimp 2.0.5, 2.2 for 
GNU/Linux, Gimp Perl 2.0 and Pango 1.6.) Any advice on what to look at next 
would be appreciated.
