Summary0000988: Unicode problem: Can't search for places with unicode characters
DescriptionSearching in the map pane for places like in non-latin scripts such as Chinese, Thai or Russian fails with the message
"??" not found...

To reproduce, search for ?????? (Moscow), ????????????? (Bangkok) or ?? (Beijing). This happens regardless of using google maps, OSM, etc.

My PC runs an english-language Win XP SP3, "Language for Non-Unicode Programs": German

Additional InformationIt is still possible to search for transliterations of the places' names such as "Beijing", "Krung Thep"/"Bangkok" etc. but this makes geosetter slightly more difficult to use for people dealing with pictures taken all over the world.

Okay, all the Chinese, Thai and Russian characters have been replaced with question marks by the bug tracking software (also Unicode-unaware?). Basically it's possible to get the characters on the corresponding wikipedia pages...
