My i18n file contains

LANG="en_US.UTF-8"
SYSFONT="latarcyrheb-sun16"
SUPPORTED="en_US.UTF-8:en_US:en"

Some on this computer, some on what is now the server box.  The email I 
mentioned arrived in kmail, showing the same symptoms, a couple of days ago.

Here's a sample -

../Mp3/marisa_monte/rose_and_charcoal/06_dan�_da_solid�.mp3

The title should read 

06_dança_da_solidäo.mp3
