stdout tab barfs on weird unicode
« on: May 04, 2009, 11:00:39 PM »
Hi, when I render with maxwell, it spits a weird character into the stdout stream (probably the copyright symbol).  Anyway, it completely kills any display of stdout data.  Can you make this a bit more elegant so it simple strips or inserts another character when it encounters something it can't deal with?

Hi pinkwerks,

Thanks for the report.
Our GUI lead developer will be looking at that shortly, and may
ask you for further details.

This looks to be the same as the identified and solved bug with displaying Japanese in the stdout/stderr panels.  It was fixed in QubeGUI 5.4.4.  Please download the latest QubeGUI 5.4.5 for a unicode fix in the stdout and stderr panels.
