Description Jaka Kranjc 2006-10-13 10:23:29 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from:    Compiled From Sources
Compiler:          gcc (GCC) 4.0.3 
OS:                Linux

I added some labels to a sketch and two of them contain the greek alpha symbol α. But after opening the file the next day, alpha is replaced by some other chars (capital i with circumflex and +/-).

If I remove the first (magic) line, file confirms the kig file is "UTF-8 Unicode text". Opening it shows the same two bad symbols:
<Data type="string" id="2" >α</Data>
<Data type="string" id="16" >2α</Data>

So I deduce that something is wrong before writing the file already. The fact that two chars replaced one maybe shows that kig interprets the multibyte unicode char as two singlebyte chars (both those chars are ascii).
