i found a problem with tkinter and mac os x  (10.5): 

tkinter shows chinese (?) letters instead of arabic letters, what it actually should do.

Code, file encoding and database are ok: because 1. no problems with windows xp, 2. every other output (console, text file) is correct as well.

The problem appears only in tkinter entry and listbox widgets.

any ideas?

Thanks, servuz


I described the problem (in german) as well in my blog. there are also some screenshots:
