I only started using tabbed the other day, but I also have issues with Unicode (in my case Japanese showing up as “tofu”).

My intuition is that it is related to font loading and fall backs, so I am tempted to take a stab at it by comparing the font loading/handling between tabbed, dwm, st, and sent to see if I can spot any difference, as the latter three have no issues. If I am correct, it should not be an awfully difficult patch.
