    I would guess this is because the latest Redhat uses a UTF-8 locale for
    it's default, whereas that line and line 2221 in anomy are assuming one
    of the ISO-8859-x character sets. A quick 'solution' would be to run
    Amony under a normal locale:

    $ export LANG=en_GB.ISO-8859-1
    $ locale
