KDE seems to (but I'm still investigating)...  Users can...  Other apps 
that use kaboodle to play sounds will...

And then there's this reason:  It makes no sense to even have that UTF8 
setting if you're not going to use it when you know it's needed.  May as 
well remove it if you're going to guarantee that it breaks things.   "KDE 
is network transparent.. but the local file system is opaque sometimes."
