Description Peter Åstrand cendio 2011-04-19 15:13:48 CEST
I have a session for user "åstrand2". When running tl-limit-printers I get:

User åstrand2 has no ThinLinc session. Not limiting list of printers.

I don't know if this is a regression or not. Checked the XMLRPC communication with Wireshark and the name is correctly coded as UTF-8. But when dumping the sessions struct from Python, I get:

{u'\xe5strand2': [{'client_ip': '', ...

ie the username is coded as latin1.
