I have been spending a lot of time recently going through the message boards for the SZTAKI Desktop Grid project, and while I know no Magyar, The Magyar text I see on Safari 2.0.4 on Mac OS X 10.4.7 is garbled, with some accented latin characters being improperly displayed as up to three symbol characters. Changing text encoding from its default (utf-8) to any Latin encoding makes little difference to the garbled characters.

The three symbol characters suggests that the BOINC Message interface is mistreating utf-8 octets, at least on the machine and version run for SZTAKI Desktop Grid. One message (somewhereon the SZTAKI Desktop Grid Message Board) also suggests this. Any possibility of a fix with next upgrade?
