I think is caused because you don't have the character conversion modules
installed for GNU libc.

Widgets like the frame widget just treat the string as an opaque chunk
so they don't notice this, but the label widget wants to covert the
string to wide characters, manipulate it that way (to find out word
breaks, etc.), and then convert back.
