Somehow some of the po files get messed up to where they are not utf-8 encoded.
 When I pull the translations out of the po files to build the .desktop file,
even one non-utf8 encoded string will make the whole desktop file non-utf-8

I converted the po file back into utf8 and then regenerated the desktop file. 
It should work now with redhat-config-language 1.0.3-2.  QA, please verify.

There is a stack of 64 bugs that have been in Modified state for a long period
of time.  I am closing these as Rawhide now.  If you find that the issue is not
fixed, please reopen this report.
