Emelfm2 backtrace

Changed 2 years ago by anonymous

The backtrace documents failure in g_utf8_collate_key(), during processing of string “î/”. The string is as it should be, and a dir with that name does not produce any problem in e2, here. Maybe a glib problem ?

  • status changed from new to closed
  • resolution set to fixed

As from v.0.5.2, the application handles non-ASCII encoding as it is found, though sometimes, [g]libc functionality can still be a probolem, due to its failure to report encoding-conversion-failure
