bug#464: 23.0.60; [Regression] Implicit utf-8 no longer correctly decode


From: James Cloos
Subject: bug#464: 23.0.60; [Regression] Implicit utf-8 no longer correctly decoded in gnus
Date: Sun, 22 Jun 2008 02:37:34 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.110011 (No Gnus v0.11) Emacs/23.0.60 (gnu/linux)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

For the last few weeks gnus no longer correctly displays utf-8 data in
articles or mime-parts which do not explicitly declare themselves to be
utf-8.  Before, this just worked.

It is very common with commit messages that the mime block for the
message has no local headers, or they don’t use mime at all, and also do
not specify a charset in the main headers.  This used to display
correctly, but no longer does so.

As an example, ‘ and ’ display as ^X and ^Y (in the escape-glyph face).

Using C-ug shows that the correct octets are there.

Saving the article or mime block saves the incorrect data, whereas
caching the article (with *) saves the correct octet-stream.  Viewing
the cached article outside of gnus works (at least, of course, in a
UTF-8 locale...).


If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
/usr/share/emacs/23.0.60/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
