Update of bug #38734 (project weechat):

                  Status:                    None => Wont Fix               
             Assigned to:                    None => flashcode              


Follow-up Comment #1:

Problem happens because the message is cut by another client (to fit in the
IRC 512 bytes limit).

Some clients like irssi cuts the message in the middle of an UTF-8 char, and
then the message becomes UTF-8 invalid.

When the message is not UTF-8 valid, WeeChat will try to decode it using
"decode" charset, which is by default "iso-8859-1".
And after such decode, all UTF-8 chars are lost.

One solution is then to remove the "iso-8859-1" default decode charset if you
don't use it (or set it only on buffers where you really need it):

/set charset.default.decode ""
