I use GNU Emacs 23.4.1 that comes with Debian Wheezy and UTF-8 as system character encoding. When I add bookmark it displays properly in minibuffer and in the buffer, however the bookmark name is mangled in Emacs bookmarks menu ("Jump to bookmark" list to be exact). Any ideas?

  • This is a wild guess, but does (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8) help? – Swaroop C H Mar 13 '15 at 14:37
  • I seem to recall an Emacs bug report about this, but I can't seem to find it. Perhaps someone can confirm whether this has been fixed in more recent Emacs versions. You might also want to specify your window manager / OS. I imagine that you see the same problem in any menu item that contains such a character (e.g. buffer name, in Buffers menu), and that it is unrelated to bookmark names in particular. – Drew Mar 13 '15 at 15:11

The problem is solved in emacs 24 which comes with Debian Jessie.
