hmmm, Evolution 1.2.x doesn't use UTF-8 for dialog label display, it
just uses the user's locale charset so _() macro's should be fine.

the only place evo uses UTF-8 is in the custom widgets (which the passwd
dialog doesn't use).

basically, all messages from camel (errors/prompts) are supposed to be
in the locale charset.

I think someone else reported something similar...(there's a bug in
bugzilla about it) perhaps it is only a problem when the locale is UTF-8
but the po files are in Latin1?
