Thank you for your interest in improving Debian, and sorry to keep the
bug unattended for so long.  There's now an effort to review the open
bugs related with aptitude and resume development.

I think that the following items are related, a bug report and a way
to fix it in Pidgin:

The problem seems to be that the glib function expects utf8 strings
but it's given other strings by the locale settings:
  Locale: LANG=cs_CZ, LC_CTYPE=cs_CZ (charmap=ISO-8859-2)

This is the documentation of the function, expecting "some valid UTF-8 text":

So probably the fix involves validating the utf8 string, as Pidgin
does in the bugfix.

But before anything else, could you (Jiri) please check that this is
still happening?
