Package: enigmail
Version: 2:0.94.0.icedove-1
Severity: minor


When updating key from a key server which contains non-ASCII characters,
the messages contains the UTF-8 encoded values as ISO-8856 characters.

Note that the first message is displayed correctly, yet it seems the output from
GPG is missinterpreted.  The characters displayed by enigmail internally are
as expected.
