    I back-up my macbook (OSX10.4) to an Ubuntu box using the X11 terminal on my mac with rsync, however I'm having problems with Asian characters.

    The Asian characters don't display in X11, which I can work around, however X11 interprets the characters in strange, seemingly random ways, which could include the carriage-return-key and other random hieroglyphs. This then causes a problem because when rsync compares the old and new copies of the files, it gets the names confused and thinks files have disappeared when they have not.

    Can anyone tell me how to stop this happening?
