Or, if you prefer, you can just change the first line of
file-roller-ru.omf to specify that the file is using ISO-8859-5
(Cyrillic) encoding rather than the default UTF-8:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-5" standalone="yes"?>
(I also changed standalone to 'yes', since the file is standalone.)
How did this ever get into upstream? Perhaps Sebastien could make the
change manually to eliminate all of the user confusion, at least until
upstream clues in.
All the best,
