Package: libpango1.0-0
Version: 1.16.4-1
Severity: important

Hash: SHA1

For a few days now Japanese characters are rendered invisible in all
kind of GTK based applications. Since I didn’t upgrade my GTK libs for a
long time, only Pango can be involved, AFAIS.

Have a look at this directory listing from Thunar:


(It’s the same in GTKFilePicker and other GTK based apps.)

This is the way it ought to look:

> $ ls
> 01 - disintegration.mp3
> 02 - Spica ~Reaching for the Stars version~.mp3
> 03 - Moon.mp3
> 04 - 夏影.mp3
> 05 - 鳥の詩.mp3
> 06 - Farewell song.mp3
> 07 - Last regrets ~acoustic version~.mp3
> 08 - Light colors.mp3
> 09 - Ana.mp3
> 10 - 小さなてのひら.mp3
> cover.jpg

If this is NOT pango related, please point me into the correct direction
since I’m puzzled why this happens.
