Summary: alpine: Missing umlaut in date column: our_strftime
does not always return utf8-encoded strings
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 11.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: openSUSE 11.1
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Other
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: kdevel@xxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa@xxxxxxx
Found By: ---
Blocker: ---


User-Agent:

Alpine does not correctly encode non-utf-8-data from locale's time and date
formatting.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open console/xterm with 8-Bit character encoding (i.e. ISO-8859-1)
2. start alpine with LANG=de_DE@euro
3. have an e-mail in your inbox with a date of March.
Actual Results:
The Date displayed is "M"

Expected Results:
"Mär"

strftime may return non-utf8 data if operated in a non-utf8 environment. In The
non-WINDOWS-case no change of encoding to utf8 is performed in our_strftime
(pith/string.c) but utf8 is expected from functions calling our_strftime.
