I'm having some issues with iconv, Xft, and UTF-8 rendering. Could you
please help me look into this:
The easiest of those to reproduce is probably blackbox:
If you omit 0.70.1-disable-unicode-fonts.patch, build blackbox, and run
it within a standard X display (not multiwindow), you'll see what I
mean; you don't have to install it to run it for this purpose.
Right now, I want to figure out if the problem is with Cygwin, iconv,
libXft, or these packages (although I doubt the latter). Any assistance
you can provide would be appreciated.
I think iconv is exonerated. This seems to be breakage due to a sizeof(wchar_t) == 4
assumption in blackbox. The file in question has a trolltech copyright on it so it
wouldn't surprise me if the same code turns up in Qt :-)
I've an attached an example patch to fix it in bugzilla.
