Yes, this is the scrap I found in GNU Emacs 21.x in Fedora Core 1 when I pasted some contents from some other GNOME application!

Since this Linux PC was just my desktop machine and my /real/ Emacsen were running on Sun servers my workaround was very simple: vi(m) in some terminal emulation. Sometimes a simple echo or cat was my friend ...

I never studied GNOME that much that I found a clue. Could be it helps to set in login and any other shell the environment variables LC_ALL and LANG to some utf-8 based value. What I also observed, is that parts of the ANSI like ESC sequences changed when I copied from differently encoded files. So it's actually, IMO, not the *real* X selection you are pasting, but some GNOME selection that also tells all GNOME applications how the text you paste is encoded – which is clever!



Make it simple, as simple as possible but no simpler.
