Bug#695933: zenity: "zenity --text-info" Chokes on some UTF-8 string

Package: zenity
Version: 3.4.0-2
Severity: important

im-config (Input method configuration dialog) under ja_JP.UTF-8 breaks
due to zenity choking on some UTF-8 strings.

I made good zenity result causing case and bad result causing case as
simple shell script.  Their differences are 2 additional new lines.
(Both are run under UTF-8 environment with Japanese font present.)

Corresponding screen image is also in attached tar.

This bad text info is basically treating input as Latin1 char set.  So
something goes wrong ...
