Re: Right-arrow character and autocomplete

Apologies, seems I forgot to reply to all. See my message below. 

Tl:dr: my OS had indeed a locale problem which I now corrected. Now it all works well. Thanks for your help and sorry for the false report.

That was a quick reply.

I checked and my locale was wrong (some values were set to "C",
instead of the de_DE.UTF-8 of the rest), caused by some bad KDE plasma
configuration file. It actually helped me solve an unrelated problem
I've had for a while, so thanks a lot!

Sorry to have reported it as a bug when it was my system's fault.

Best regards,

Yes, indeed.
