I'm trying to teach  "dugui.py" (a tiny GUI for restructuredtext written in 
wxPython) to accept files in isolatin-1 encoding.  It displays e.g. German 
umlauts correctly but then I get a popup window saying
Python Error
Cannot convert from the charset 'latin-1'!

How can I find out where this did come from. Running it under pdb
isn't helpful either.

Many thanks for a hint,
