My theory was that the difference is that you don't use a UTF-8 locale
on Mandrake. If you get the strings _solely_ through gettext with
bind_textdomain_codeset, they ought to be UTF-8 either way, though.

Can you reproduce the problem with a small compilable example that we
could have a look at? Something like:

  int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    GtkWidget *window;      
    GtkWidget *label;

    bind_textdomain_codeset("test", "UTF-8");

    gtk_init (&argc, &argv);
    window = gtk_window_new (GTK_WINDOW_TOPLEVEL);
    label = gtk_label_new (gettext("Hello World"));
    gtk_container_add (GTK_CONTAINER (window), label);
    gtk_widget_show (label);
    gtk_widget_show (window);
    gtk_main ();
