Package: xaos
Version: 3.1r-5
Severity: minor
Tags: l10n

In my locale, which is German and UTF-8, the menu in xaos cannot copy
with the funny characters. It seems the output routine wants its input
in Latin-1 (the output looks like UTF-8 in Latin-1-mode), but gettext
gives UTF-8. Or something. Possibly easy to workaround when calling
setlocale again with LC_CTYPE.

Version: 3.4-1

The text encoding problems were fixed in Xaos 3.4.  From the upstream

    Add code to convert user's native text encoding (usually UTF-8) to
    Latin1/2 to prevent garbled text through built-in text handling system

It works fine at least in de_DE.UTF-8.
