To be honest I don't know how to do this but will try to see if I can
work it out.

If I declare a string as Glib::ustring does this mean it is in utf8?
Both username and password are declared as Glib::ustrings

Yep I definitely haven't called this.  This should be put in main yeah
when first starting the program?

Not sure if I do at this stage, mainly just the retrieval and display
but will want the flexibility there in the future so sticking with
Glib::ustring is probably the way to go.

Thanks for this!  Using raw() avoids the error until I learn the
exception catching stuff.
