I'm not too familiar with this character encoding thing, so I'm not
sure if it is a bug in xgnokii or some other problem.

The LC_* variables were set to "en_US.UTF-8" in my environment. With
this, I got those two characters when typing an umlaut in the "New
Message" window. There were no latin1 locales available on my system,
so I had to create it (with "locale-gen en_US") and set LC_ALL
accordingly. With that, umlauts do work, but it's a rather cumbersome
process to get there.

It looks like the handling of UTF-8 in xgnokki might have some
