Bug Description

Binary package hint: apertium-tolk

The bug is maybe related to apertium-dbus, and ultimately to the limitations of character handling in python.
Apertium-tolk in Ubuntu 8.01 launches nicely but whenever one types in a non-ASCII character it produces an error. This is the error produced when one types "ç" (c with cedilla) as in:

comme ci comme ça

org.freedesktop.DBus.Python.UnicodeEncodeError: Traceback (most recent call last):

  File "/usr/share/apertium/dbus-1/mode.py", line 61, in translate
    return translate.translate(self.mode, options, text)
