"I guess your strings get sent as unicode but by the fields function interpreted as ascii in which case the second byte is zero and thus you see only 1 character. The string should be converted to utf-8 probably and perhaps they forgot this function."
Is anyone using wxhaskell and ghc-6.6? If so, are you getting the same problem? Fix? Work-around?
I grabbed & built the latest wxhaskell from http://darcs.haskell.org and recompiled an app, all under ghc-6.6 . My labels and text fields are getting truncated to a single character. Any ideas? Thanks, - Conal
