Content-Type: text/plain
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Take a look at this simple example, its not displaying some characters
corretly. Not sure if its a bug or not. Do i need to do some string
conversion ?

compile with mcs TestBuffer.cs -o TestBuffer.exe /r:gtk-sharp.dll


Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=TestBuffer.cs
Content-Type: text/x-csharp; name=TestBuffer.cs; charset=UTF-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

using System;
using Gtk;

class TestBuffer
	TextView tv;
	static void Main ()
		new TestBuffer ();
	TestBuffer ()
		Application.Init ();
		Gtk.Window win = new Gtk.Window ("TextView Test");
		win.SetDefaultSize (400, 300);
		win.DeleteEvent += new DeleteEventHandler (OnWinDelete);
		VBox vbox = new VBox (false, 0);
		win.Add (vbox);

		TextBuffer buf = new TextBuffer (null);
		tv = new TextView ();
		tv.Buffer = buf;

		buf.Insert (buf.EndIter, "This is a string that should not look like this: ãóíú͊ΩЯӬ✄✞«®¢©ʬ");
		vbox.PackStart (tv, true, true, 0);

		win.ShowAll ();
		Application.Run ();
	void OnWinDelete (object o, DeleteEventArgs args)
		Application.Quit ();
