One thing that has been bugging me since I converted my system to UTF-8:

dwm has trouble rendering non-ASCII characters in the status bar (and
the small bar over non-focused windows). This should be quite easy to
reproduce on a UTF-8 system:

1) Fire up firefox.
2) Go to
3) Look at the status bar, the Umlauts are rendered wrong (two random
   characters instead of one).

I have LANG=en_US.UTF-8 as locale setting. wmii gets this right on the
same box (Debian PPC unstable). I tested with a freshly-compiled
dwm-2.2 of course. Let me know if I can provide further details to
narrow down this problem.

Oh, before I forget: Thanks for dwm. I've been using it for some time
now and it doesn't eventually drive me nuts like all window managers
have so far :)
