Hi all,

I'm having a weird problem when I try to run my RCP app on Linux (gentoo)
which doesn't occur on the windows version. When I try to copy and paste
chinese characters from my web browser to a StyledText widget in my app,
it pastes the character as its unicode string. ie. 你 turns into
\u4f60. However typing chinese into the StyledText and copy-pasting into
another StyledText works fine. As does pasting from browser to a Text
widget.

Easiest way to reproduce my problem. Use the RcpMail template and change
the Text widget in View.java to a StyledText. Then go to BBC chinese
http://news.bbc.co.uk/chinese/simp/hi/default.stm and try to paste some
chinese characters in.

Any ideas? Thanks.

Chris Fong
