I wish I knew:


Any help on this issue would be greatly welcome.  I know very little
about unicode, and what I've read so far hasn't yet shown me what the
solution here should be.

I didn't mark this as an 0.7.4 bug because we may well not solve it
that quickly, but it would be nice to have it fixed.
