That may well be true. However, because Linux sucks so hard for things like video, sound, printing, syncing your ipod, and all the other things that real users want to do with their desktops, it is not something that I care to support. And support it I must, because I'll have chosen it for them precisely because I can support it but not Windows.

    [LanX]: before digging into deep debugging ... I have a strange UTF8 problem, probably it rings a bell:
    [LanX]: two utf8 strings from different sources are base64 encoded, but after joining both the umlauts in teh second get deleted
    [Corion]: LanX: You can't just join two base64 strings together
    [LanX]: (not a high priority bug because I can use some HTML entities in the second string)
    [Corion]: base64 is padded to a multiple of 4 chars (or something)
    [LanX]: misunderstanding, I joined them before converting to base64
    [Corion]: Also, I would be wary of encodings and try to make really sure that both input strings are UTF-8. Maybe join the input strings from one source together to see whether they decode as bad or not
    [Corion]: LanX: Then the problem should persist without encoding to base64 too ;)
    [LanX]: I think it's a flag problem ... I'll produce a reprodocable example for SOPW
