#6144 new defect

When paste from clipboard, message is alwais sent in utf-8 regardless to account's settings

Reported by: Vcoder Owned by: elb
Milestone: Component: IRC
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords: irc utf-8 codepage


I am a russian Pidgin user and while using Pigdin for IRC chats, I found a bug:

When typing a message only by keyboard - it sends in codepage specified in IRC account's settings.

But when copy & paste some text containing unicode characters (russian text, for example) - message is alwais sent in system UTF-8 codepage, even if another codepage is selected in account's settings.

Is this still happening on 2.5.8?

This *probably* isn't an IRC-specific issue (it sounds a lot like it's pidgin's paste handling code). I'll let elb decide (especially since he's UTF-knowledgeable, too)
