The patch solves the crash.

But I'm completely confused. The problem here was that OOo does not
set the NET_ properties, only the WM_ ones. My patch was trying
unconditionaly to convert the strings there from the locale encoding
to UTF-8, causing the crash since they came as ISO-8859-1 but the
locales (all of them, sawfish, the nested x server and OOo) *were*

Adding to my confusion, the patch solves this by passing the property
to Xutf8TextPropertyToTextList, which correctly decodes it to UTF-8,
despite its name making me think it was supposed to do the oposite or


Given this, I say we should do a new point release with this
patch. I'll test the other patch (Titlebar updates) in a little while,
but it seems to me it should be included, too.
