I found that nautilus and eel treat almost all string as char *, it's not an i18n compatible method. May be it's better to use wchar_t * (GdkWChar *) instead of char * (gchar*) as internal string type. It would simplify the string handle and will achieve better i18n compatiblity.

   I have test these patch under zh_CN.GB2312 and zh_CN.GBK locales.

These patches look pretty good. One small problem with them is that they don't use the proper coding style. For example, you write:

    g_free( xxx );

and in Eel, the style is:

    g_free (xxx);

and you write:

    if( wc_text_len <= 0 ){

but in Eel, the style is:

    if (wc_text_len <= 0) {

If you would fix these minor problems and resubmit the patch it would be much appreciated.
