You need an Xorg fix, the issue has been discussed on the wmii mailing
lists some time ago. I have the fix and it works for me. I'm using a
modified version of XLC_LOCALE, you cat get the one I'm using from:

I replaced the original one in


with the modified one. I don't know whether this particular XLC_LOCALE
file will work for locales other than en_US.UTF-8, but you can probably

differences between this one and the original en_US one.
