          Platform: All

If you enter a word countaining accents (such as "árvíztűrő") into the search
box on, one of three things can happen (apparently at
* it reloads the current page
* it shows an empty page with an error message (something about mobile
wikipedia page still being under developement and having recorded the problem)
* it shows the start page of non-mobile version (very bad! also, this is far
more frequent than the other two)
Sometimes the error page is shown for a second then it jumps to the non-mobile
start page.

I could only test these on online simulators ( and ) but we got
reports from actual mobile users too.
