Re: [Evolution] Unicode window titles

Ok, then either we are wrongly setting the title using raw utf8 (which
is a different bug), or kwin is not reading the old property right
(personally i suspect the former of course).

gtk 2 does have this stuff afaik, so it will eventually be addressed,
but apart from fixing evolution to set using the correct charset with
the current api (which i suspect would address the problem  sufficiently
for most people), messing about with window properties directly seems
like something we'd want to avoid.

That's a problem, if we're not whilling go break the abstraction layer.

And if we decided to pass utf8, wouldn't that break older window
managers, if they use the same property?

I meant "since the old property is named differently, old window
managers will still use the old property while UTF-8 aware ones will
use the new one".

Ok, i thought you would mean that but it didn't read that way, nor did
the page i looked at. :)
