Because almost other clients uses ISO-8859-1 -> UTF-8, Messages from other client can't see in Gabber.( ex. In Korean, Gabber uses EUCKR -> UTF-8. but others(WinJab, JabberIM, etc.) just uses ISO-8859-1 -> UTF-8 )
Obviously, Gabber's method are right. But unfortunatly, other client doesn't support this. :-(
It's just temporary patch for multibyte languages by making e_gdk_font_encoding() always return "ISO-8859-1".
I strongly suggest that make "encoding" property in preference like below.

[checkbox] Encoding [Select]
ISO-8859-1,.....,EUCKR,.... etc.

I'm sorry that i can't make that becaue i don't know much about GTK+ & GNOME. :-(

    can't you change the charset that it will use using the LC_ environment variables? check out man setlocale.

    That is impossible to Korean. Because Korean's XIM, "ami" doesn't works with other locales. only works on EUCKR. :-(
    So I suggested that makes Encoding property.
    I'm really sorry about annoying yours.
