> I has been able to render Chinese characters in some Window-based

> settings:
>         export LANG=
>         export LC_ALL=
>         export LC_CTYPE=zh_CN.UTF-8
>         export LC_COLLATE=zh_CN.gb18030
> Though the fonts were not as beautiful as I could get from Ubuntu
> natively, they were pretty much usable.
> After upgrading to 0.9.47 (both using prebuilt Ubuntu binary and one
> that I built from source), all the Chinese characters were turned into
> colons (':') with the same locales. Trying the above locale with
> notepad, it works fine, but for uTorrent, etc., no Chinese characters
> were displayed.
> Do you have any idea if this is indeed caused by the new Tahoma font? Or
> if there is anything that I can experiment to fix it?

Does adding fontlink registries following these instructions [1] help?
If not, please try regression testing to find the commit that broke it
and file a bug for it in bugzilla. Instructions for regression testing
