(Does the Win32 version use GTK?)
The patch basically turns on support for the X clipboard format
know as "UTF8_STRING", which is used by gtk2, mozilla, etc, pretty
much any recent app uses it instead of "COMPOUND_TEXT". (Also
in my apps I dont bother to support anything but UTF8_STRING,
so it help me personally too.)
On my system "COMPOUND_TEXT" doesnt work because i muck around with
my locales etc too much, so in order for me to copy/paste multilanguage
stuff I needed "UTF8_STRING" pretty badly. PS, ive been using the patch
with vim/gvim for several months now, with no problems.
So i think my patch is a bit X-windows oriented.
As for ms-windows, doesnt that use some sort of UTF-16 encoding
I dont have any way to write windows code, so I cant help you with

various conversions that need to be checked, including iconv().
