The specific issue in UTF8 encoding looks specific to Moldzilla. You can
check the behavior of the file selector itself with "zenity
--file-selection", which doesn’t crash when you use the UTF8 encoding.
Which means icedove passes an invalid UTF8 string to a function that
expects valid UTF8, while e.g. gedit or zenity don’t.
