Hi all,

One of the most frequently reported issues for Potlatch is that it's  
almost impossible for Linux users to enter non-Latin characters in  
tags. This appears to be a bug in Linux Flash Player.

Browsing through one of the Flash developers' blogs earlier (http:// 
www.kaourantin.net/), I spotted this in the list of bugs fixed in the  
latest Flash (

210333 Can't input local words with IME on linux

...which sounds like it might be relevant. But then, the FP in  
question was released back in December.

Could anyone with Linux Flash Player let me know whether this has  
fixed the issue or not?
