I think reproduced the problem.
Although I do not have the warnings (maybe there is no trace in my
version of pango), I get display errors.
The problem apears if I use the pound as currency with the en_GB locale.
The explanation would be the following:
gnucash attempts to display the pound symbol from ISO-8859-1 without
converting it to utf-8 before.
this symbol is not ASCII, and probably does not correspond to a valid
If this is true, that means that the problems lies in the way messages
are passed to gnome. Something should be done to convert them from the
locale's charmap to utf-8 before displaying them.
Hope this helps.
