Description Platonides 2008-11-06 14:51:48 UTC
See url. The file contains a bare 0x0F character  on the title field which is passed untranslated through the API to the user as XML. It would be bad if this were an invalid unicode char, but being < 32, per its presence makes the full api result not well-formed, choking XML parsers on it.

Related to bug 15261, bug 16105.
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2009-01-14 21:23:57 UTC
Should be fixed in r45749: 0x0F is invalid UTF-8 and converted to the UTF-8 replacement character (U+FFFD).
