[shurik@math.unibas.ch: Bug#42974: xpw: pw segfaults on startup.]

Are there any known problem with Cyrillic font,
or Russian LANG setting in Pathetic Writer?

If I set LANG=ru_RU, pw (3.1.20) segfaults, as stated
in the bug report attach below, that I receive against
Pathetic Writer debian package.

I remember someone speaking about these problems, but
can't find on my mail archives.

Great, thanks! That was the problem. Here are my standard locale settings:
  $ locale

(russian is aliased to ru_RU.KOI8-R). I only need LC_CTYPE to allow russian
characters to be entered in a shell. As soon as I unset it, everything works
fine! OK, I can live without it. (at least for a while ;-) )

Thanks again!
