Spent much time last night trying to figure out why the persion translation for gtk2 wasn't working on Red Hat 7.0, and ended up discovering that this was due to UTF-8 being in lowercase instead of uppercase. This was then causing glibc2.2 to try and convert it from latin1 to UTF-8, when it was already in UTF-8. Madness ensued.
Bidi xterm hacking going well, should be feature-complete by the end of the month.
Er, that's about it really.
