           Summary: Created .desktop files contain characters in wrong
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.32.
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-setupapi
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: anpaza at mail.ru

The standard for .desktop files says that all strings (such as icon name) inside
the .desktop file must be in the UTF-8 encoding. WINE does not re-encode the
application name (from WANSI) which results in bad icon name if icon name
contains national characters (such as Cyrillic in my case - the icon title is
written to the .desktop file in Windows-1251 encoding while it should be
translated to UTF-8 in order for GNOME/KDE to handle them correctly).
