ID3v1 tags should not contain cyrillic characters.  I know that sucks, but there's no provision for encoding in an ID3v1 tag and using the system locale for meta data is just a broken idea.  Fortunately ID3v2 does support UTF and ID3v2 is supported in KDE 3.2.

I've even written a small utility to convert ID3v1 tags in the system locale to valid ID3v2 tags.  Please read the notes and try it on some files that you have backed up before going crazy with it.  I make no promises that it won't break everything.  ;-)
