           Summary: Unicode text label corruption in .kst files

kst corrupts unicode data contained by text labels when saving these data to .kst files.  Non-ASCII unicode characters are replaced by a question mark ? (U+003F).

Note: this does not happen for unicode data contained in certain other text fields.  For instance, unicode in axes labels is stored properly to the .kst file.


1. Create a text label (F7) with some non-ASCII unicode characters in it.

2. Save the session to a .kst file.

3. Reload the .kst file.


Non-ASCII characters in the text label have been replaced with question marks.


The unicode text label should contain the unicode string originally specified.
