Hi there,

I've good news, I believe I have fixed all locale/UTF-8 related
problems in dwm and dmenu.

Actually for me it works fine, if I use en_US.UTF-8 as locale
and the terminus-UTF-8 capable font. All glyphs are rendered
correctly when visiting following URLs with firefox in the dwm
title rendering:

The following does not work:
(but related to terminus font that does not contain fontsets for chinese)

Well, how does the fix look like?

I moved the setlocale(LC_CTYPE, ""); from draw.c to main.c, and
I use locale.h instead of Xlocale.h - basically that's all
already. Xlib seems to work improperly if that is not done
