I have asked you this before in private, but I fear I didn't really 
understand the answer. When I ran with an "incorrect" locale setting 
(en_US.utf8 instead of en_US.UTF-8), konsole would display Hebrew 
characters using the UTF-8 encoding. Furthermore, running OpenOffice, 
kedit or Mozilla would also work properly. It appears as if wine and xev 
are the only two applications in the world that would refuse to work 
with those slightly incorrect locales.

Can you please explain again how the other applications do this miracle?
