As maintainer (currently also upstream) of wmakerconf, I second this
opinion.  It looks like wmaker 0.90 has switched to UTF-8, but
wmakerconf (being based on GTK+ 1.2) has not yet, leading to bugs like
#282807.  I'm trying to port wmakerconf to GTK+ 2.x but there are some
weird problems that will take a little while to solve, and I won't have
much free programming time before Christmas.
