It's probably related to one of the two commits that Campbell has been doing in this area recently:

  • 15bc30f4ee49c69f3e
  • a5cb2229abbc7d43f

I cant redo this bug, strange because Im on 64bit Linux too. (as is @JT Nelson (jta))


You will find in attachment my system-info.txt, and result of "locale" command.
I don't know what other information you may need : don't hesitate to ask me !


@Julien DUROURE (julien), we use almost all our own unicode functions to avoid locale settings giving different results depending on the environment.

  • Can someone confirm this bug still happens (made some other fixed for 3d text recently)
  • Can someone check if this bug is caused by locale settings (try with/without locale set to en.US for eg).
  • Is this bug OS related (Aligorith - are you on Windows?).

Can confirm on 64 bit arch linux.
Setting LANG to en_US.UTF-8 had no effect.

Fixed rB7b8e07b7d011fe7245499a267ac967d5787a59e9

was caused by own mistake - text conversion being inside an assert, which made it only work on debug builds.

i can confirm it is fixed.
