Similar to bug #1028828, I was not able to replicate this problem. Do you still encounter the problem?

There has been no new indicator-datetime release after these bugs were failed, so possibly it's something else that got fixed meanwhile?

@TImo,
I just tried with the latest build(quantal-alternate-amd64.iso build:20120812), this problem still exists, but the "Invalid UTF 8" change to be "周h" which is still wrong

due to we stopped releasing quantal alternate isos, I wonder if we still need to work on this bug .

So this does not happen for you on a normal Quantal install?

lets just close it then. The issue may as well have appeared due to missing language packs, or some other dep which are installed fine on the desktop cd.
