Problems with intl. chars in RoR 1.2.x


#1

Hello,
I’ve tried to upgrade my app to RoR 1.2.2, but it broke regular
expressions working with international characters like ‘á’ or ‘ä’ etc.
E.g. /xx: (.+) zz/.match(“xx: aáä zz”)[1] returns NoMethodError in
script/console but it works in plain irb.
Another strange thing: when I enter any string containing those
intl.chars in script/console, it hangs.

Am I doing something wrong? I’ve even tried String#chars method, gem
unicode etc.,but none of them helped.
