Using a locale and font configuration that works fine for dwm and
dmenu (LANG=en_US.UTF-8,
font=-*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1) I have found
some encoding issues in the titles shown by tabbed (both for embedded
surf and urxvt instances) when they include latin1 characters above
the basic ascii set. Comparing dwm.c and tabbed.c side by side I
managed to identify the cause of the different behaviors, which was
the use of _NET_WM_NAME atom when calling gettextprop. I don't really
pretend to understand what's happening here in any depth but the fix
worked for me.

Best regards
