Looks like somehow BWidget and RedHat 9 don't like each
other. In tkabber, each characters is followed by a 'box'.
Looks like a null character or some unicode effect. As
a result, things like the dialog boxes are hard to read or
get cut off. Looks like all text generated by '::msgcat'
is effected. So far, I haven't been able to find a

I tried:
- Setting the LANG/LC_LANGUAGE envionment variables to 'en'
or 'C'.
- in takabber.tcl inserting " ::msgcat::mclocale en " and removing the
respective block pulling mclocate from the
env. variable.
- playing with the language files
- replacing ::msgcat::mc "String" with just "String" in a
few places (e.g. Password: in the login dialog).

nothing helped :-/

Any ideas what else to try?
