Codepage issue with comments

Issue #40 open
Former user created an issue

Today I noticed that there is an codepage issue with comments containing umlauts.
If I try to commit changes using murky and the use non ascii charakters I get the following error:
"transaction abort!
rollback completed
abort: decoding near 'Hinzufügen von ': 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xcc in position 7: ordinal not in range(128)!"
On the shell using hg commit there is no Problem.
But murky then doesn't show the right characters.

    Weird — that's definitely an error message from hg itself, not Murky. No idea why that would happen when committing with Murky and not the command line.

    When you run 'hg commit' do you put the comment inline using the -m flag, or are you typing it using an editor?

    I tested both methods via editor and inline via -m flag. They both work.

    The error message suggest a problem with different character encodings. I don't expect Leopard to use ascii encoding rather then utf8 but as the message suggest either hg oder murky does.
