[Xlog-discussion] xlog 0.8 and 0.9 not compatible (UTF-8)

I encountered a little problem during the transition from version 0.8 to
0.9. If the log (saved with xlog 0.8) contains special/national
characters xlog 0.9 can not render the text in that field, because gtk2
expects UTF-8 encoded characters. It also triggers a warning:

** (xlog:2077): WARNING **: Invalid UTF8 string passed to

A similar problem arises in the opposite case (reading xlog-0.9 files
with xlog-0.8) in that xlog-0.8 will display nonsense instead of the
special characters.

The two version of xlog are thus incompatible with each other and could
cause trouble for people having many national characters in their logs
(fortunately I wasn't one of them ;-).
