Hi gurus and nubys,

I just noticed that if I type italian accented letters in a irb
session irb crashes silently:

C:\Documents and Settings\gabriele>irb
irb(main):001:0> 
(probably in this message this letter won't appear fine but is an
accented 'e' 
This happens on a windows XP box, where I think the charset is
windows-1252 and irb goes down with every accented vocal.
