GTK2/Pango: Invalid UTF-8 strings

Hi all,

I installed gnokii-0.6.13 on my Gentoo box, together with gtk+-2.8.19
and pango-1.12.3. My LANG is set to address@hidden, so I get German
translations in gnokii/xgnokii. There seems to be a problem with the
de.po file, though. When I start xgnokii, I get lots of these warnings:

(xgnokii:17018): Pango-WARNING **: Invalid UTF-8 string passed to

Also, the strings in xgnokii are broken when they contain special
characters. E.g. instead of "Über" (English: About) I get "?ber".

I was able to work around most of this by running

find po/ -name '*.po' -exec recode latin1..u8 {} \;

before compiling gnokii.

Does gettext maybe need those files UTF-8 encoded?
