Hi John,

As you know these versions of gedit are very old, so it's very hard for
us to support them or even recall which kind of bugs were fixed. I am
pretty sure this one as been fixed though because we used to get this
kind of reports but now we do not get them anymore.

Could it be that these people are all working on a common file (or set
of files) using a specific encoding? The error seems related to the
encoding of the file that gedit is trying to open. In particular I seem
to recall that back in the day we had issues with UTF16 files which are
common on windows... are these people working on files moved from/to

But this is just guessing...
