Xpra: Ticket #526: unicode window titles do not work on XP
GTK requires all window titles to be sent as
UTF-8, which we now do explicitly (see r5694), but even with the patch attached which uses
user32.SetWindowTextW on the window handle to bypass GTK and set the window title using
UTF-16, we still get gibberish in the title bar...
The patch also checks and the window does support unicode (
This can be tested with tests.xpra.test_apps.test_window_title

set to win32-utf16-title-MultiByteToWideChar.patch
alternative patch using MultiByteToWideChar? instead of encode to utf-16-le

changed from new to closed
set to wontfix
changed from unicode window titles do not work on win32 to unicode window titles do not work on XP
Turns out that this is a limitation of XP, works fine with win7 (see #826).
So I don't think we can fix this.
