I don't think there is an encoding problem in gmusicbrowser as nobody has complained to me about that, and I haven't made any change that could cause that in a really long time.
Also I've downloaded the debian patch and I don't see the same extra characters, Though there is those strange "Â"s which I don't think should be there at all. By the way the whole shimmer layout patch seems to be wrong, the layouts it adds are already there (I've checked in the gmusicbrowser_1.1.10.orig.tar.gz), though without the strange "Â"s.

So I don't know what is going on there, what are your locale environment variables ? And where else do you see encoding problems other than those strange things added by the layout patch ?

Confirmed: the quickest way to fix this bug is to go to http://gmusicbrowser.org, download the 1.1.10-2 or most recent package, and install it. The slowest way is to wait for it to come in an update package of its own volition.
