Hello


I tried to associate to a wireless network that has a non-ascii character
in the SSID. The non-ascii character is the letter "=FC".
Displaying the network in the wireless network list in
wicd-curses works but as soon as my computer was associated with that
wireless network wicd-curses crashed. When I try to start wicd-curses
again it crashes immediately. It stopped crashing after I unassociated
my computer from the wireless network (using wicd-gtk).

wicd-curses produces the following error messages when crashing:

I'm using Devuan GNU/Linux Jessie (x86 architectur) with kernel 3.16.0-4-68=
6-pae.
