Pasting texts from gtk+2 apps (firefox, gucharmap, ...)
converts the NL characters into some strange unicode
presentation. For example, pasting "боза" ("boza" in
cyrillic) appears as "\u0431\u043e\u0437\u0430". This
is specific to the NEdit text edit windows: pasting
into NEdit file open or find dialogs, or into any other
NL-enabled X app I have tested, is OK. Pasting NL text
from a gtk+2 window into a NL-enabled 8-bit-text X app
and then from it to an NEdit text edit window as a kind
of workaround is OK too. It's not a NEdit conversion,
the text returned XmClipboardRetrieve function is
already in this form.
