Daan's take:

"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
