I reported this about a week ago, and Matt checked in a workaround for it 
within a few minutes.


The badness was all on Qct's side, it was outputting unicode in a place where 
it should have been decoded into the local encoding.  This last round of the 
problem was caused by the new sign-off message.  Appending a QString to an 
ascii string converted the whole message to unicode.   It took me a few days 
to catch this.
