Could you please add a breakpoint in this function and step through it? I 
really would like to understand what goes on here.
The problem, as explained by the reference attached to Stefan's email, is that 
NetBSD's iconv does not support the //TRANSLIT option that GNUstep uses to 
implement lossy transformations (as you also can see from the backtrace 
provided by Riccardo). I have no idea how we could fix that in GNUstep, but on 
the other hand there is an easy solution for Riccardo: Just install the gnu 
libiconv package on NetBSD and make sure it gets used instead of the default 

I tried to install the gnu libiconv and reconfigure base and now it works without warnings.
Is this the only choice however?
