Package: enigmail
Version: 2:
Severity: normal

Hello Daniel,

as long as I remember unfortunately Enigmail is showing the messages
in UI widgets that comes from the output of a gpg call with broken
german umlauts. :-)
Now I decided to report this thing.

If you for example take a look into the output of UI widget right after
updating some random public key you will see some weired output in the
message window.

But first going down to gpg itself to see what I expected to see within
That's what gpg is doing if I call it in terminal without my typical
german environment LANG=de_DE.UTF-8

$ LANG= gpg --refresh-keys 0A9FCFB28F7F561C
gpg: refreshing 1 key from hkp://
gpg: key 0A9FCFB28F7F561C: "Christopher Pavlina (Launchpad) 
<>" not changed
gpg: Total number processed: 1
gpg:              unchanged: 1

And this is with a active LANG=de_DE.UTF-8

$ gpg --refresh-keys 0A9FCFB28F7F561C
gpg: 1 Schlüssel wird per hkp:// aktualisiert
gpg: Schlüssel 0A9FCFB28F7F561C: "Christopher Pavlina (Launchpad) 
<>" nicht geändert
gpg: Anzahl insgesamt bearbeiteter Schlüssel: 1
gpg:                             unverändert: 1

All fine and so far so good.

But within Enigmail the UI show some broken umlauts then. Please see attached
I've no idea there the output of gpg will be broken, but the UI is showing for
the german character 'ü' a 'ü'. This looks for me like a translation error
between Windows-1252 <=> UTF-8, but I maybe wrong. Maybe some useful hints to
catch the root of this issue can be found on

Please see Unicode character U+00FC on the right side of the table on the

Regards and thanks!
