Hello all,

I am forwarding a message of Christoph Anton Mitterer (Cc'ed) which was
reported at Red Hat Bugzilla. However this does not feel for me like a
downstream thing but more relevant for popt upstream, thus relaying it:

----- Forwarded message -----

Popt has apparently problems with unicode characters.
I tried to include some in the descrip and argDescrip field of the
option table, e.g.
- either directly "foo“”bar"
- or escaped "foo\u201c\u201dbar"
and then using the auto help functionallity.

popt reacts quite strangely sometimes it justs works and the characters
are printed correctly, sometimes it however skips the unicode characters
and all between them, but not necessarily for all the unicode characters
"\u201cfoo\u201d bar \u201cbaz\u201d"
may become
bar “bar”
when printed.

----- End forwarded message -----
