Re: Problems with special characters and insert-text on Gtk2::Entry

I have a problem with Gtk2::Entry when I connect a callback to insert-text
signal. All the special characters I could enter (I tested with é or à in
french) are replaced with 2 characters ("Ã(c)" or "Ã"). It looks like a UTF-8
encoding problem.

This doesn't occur when removing the callback. I am using Gtk2-Perl 1.140.
There is below a small example that shows this.

Is this a known problem that has been fixed in a newer release and/or is there
a workaround?

There's a bug in the cusom marshaller for the insert-text signal for
it doesn't mark the parameter new_text as UTF8 when passed in,
but does so when passing it out (if you return an empty list).
Suggested fix below
(bug is still present in Gtk2 1.143).
