[jp] Strange character codes

Just switched to Fedora and now I'm getting strange character
codes. It has probably something to do with the locales. I now have
LANG=en_US.UTF-8 and I don't think that was the case before. 

(I tried the simple minded export LANG=C before starting jpilot, that
has helped with other apps before, but with no luck this time.)

For example I get these types of warnings.

** (jpilot:21521): WARNING **: Invalid UTF8 string passed to pango_layout_set_text()

Some characters doesn't show or are displayed in strange ways. What is
really odd is that it is different for different windows inside of
jpilot. Example. I have a todo-item with this text:

        Skriv tidrapport för dagen
Notice this character.....|

In the task-list it is just displayed as:

        Skriv tidrapport f

So it is truncated at the offending character. But in the detailed (or
input) window it is displayed in full. So the same text is displayed
differently depending on where it is displayed.
