I've been able to reproduce the problem with the official Balsa 2.3.0 package from Debian 3.1r0 Sarge too if the locale settings are set to ro_RO.ISO-8859-2 (with ro_RO.UTF-8 everything is just fine). I think I know what causes it too... Your mail was written in a Saturday, which in Romanian locale settings is "Sîmbătă", short form "Sî". This short form is missing from the "Date" field in the mailbox view and replying to such a mail is not really possible, I get an empty window when trying to reply :(

Good work! The short form date wasn't in my prefs, so the bug didn't show itself. A simple matter of converting the formatted date from the locale charset to utf-8...patch attached. If it fixes things for you, I'll commit it to cvs.

I'm also aware of another nasty bug when replying... If you save repeatedly a reply when composing in Balsa's composer window, the mail loses the In-Reply-To header. To replicate it reply to a mail, save it once, look at the source of the draft, notice the In-Reply-To header, then save one more time and look again at the draft. The In-Reply-To header is gone.

If needed, I may fill the bug reports in Bugzilla and test for the fixes, I'll try to be as responsive as possible.

Thanks--I'll look into that one--more later.
