Window titles not interpreted according to current charset #88
PuTTY set to
This is a bit of a hack; I started porting window.c to have a wchar_t window_title, and getting the terminal to do the conversion before passing the data through, but this gets messy; quite a bit (including settings and tray) needs to become wchar_t aware before this can work; it seems almost acceptable to make the windowing stuff make the decision, based on the information the terminal has available.
However, in my tests, various apps I've tested send the title utf-8 encoded /anyway/, regardless of what you ask for with any settings I can find, and this causes us to return an empty title. If anyone actually has a non-utf-8 non-low-ascii setup that they want to report problems with (the problem being that the title bar just gets truncated), they should speak up.
