I've been digging some more. It seems GtkButton uses GtkLabel.
Which would SEEM to do the right thing, as far as the code is concerned.
There is actually a font check, and a call to XDrawString16, in
Some debug printfs say that is the function that gets called, when I set the
font in a button to "fixed".
But when I set the font to "kanji24", a wide-char JIS font, suddenly...
gdk_draw_string() doesn't even get CALLED?!!!
(and yes, the button goes blank, even though I have a JIS string in there.
So, presumably NO draw routine is being called. And i have printfs in
the other gdk_draw functions)
Could some GTK internals guru give a hint as to what is happening here?
(and incidentally, yes, I did try "export LANG=ja". I don't actually HAVE the
"ja" locale in my OS, though)
