Hello!

I've a problem: I'm using awesome window manager
(http://awesome.naquadah.org/) and it can't display characters with
accent (e.g. é, á, ...) in its textboxes.
I've send bugreport (see
http://awesome.naquadah.org/bugs/index.php?do=details&task_id=39&string=special+character&project=1&search_name=&type[0]=&sev[0]=&pri[0]=&due[0]=&reported[0]=&cat[0]=&status[0]=open&percent[0]=&opened=&dev=&closed=&duedatefrom=&duedateto=&changedfrom=&changedto=&openedfrom=&openedto=&closedfrom=&closedto=
).
Awesome's dependencies are low: cairo, fontconfig, freetype2, glibc,
xorg-libs and zlib (all are in BLFS - and I think I've system-wide
(BLFS-specific?) config-problem - see the first comment at the
bugreport). The characters in mrxvt and xterm and in other
applications are good.

An other hungarian compiled and use the awesome in ubuntu and his
characters are good!

rectangle).

I've probed various fonts and LANG but nothing....

Has anybody some usable idea?

Thanks!
