(funny, in your reply mail my quoted garbled text shows up fine....)
Ah, I see... well, I am using ncmpp as a client and that displays the
weird text when I load the music directories. I noticed a
configuration file (.ncmpcpp/config) for the client that has a
system_encoding option. If I change that from utf-8 to iso-8859-1 it
still displays weird text though, as if it was not reading the config
At any rate this was very clarifying, thanks!
