    That's not a good advice: If Satya is using an HP-Roman8 terminal,
he will get corrupted UID creation and display.

    A suitable workaround could be to alias "utf-8" to "utf8" in
/usr/lib/nls/iconv/config.iconv. For an ideal solution, GnuPG should
deal itself with system-specific charset names.

Bye!	Alain.
When you post a new message, beginning a new topic, use the "mail" or
"post" or "new message" functions.
When you reply or followup, use the "reply" or "followup" functions.
Do not do the one for the other, this breaks or hijacks threads.
