[OS X Emacs] Re: Return of dired mode problems like in Aquaemacs 1.7

Now I got it.
Error is only in Aquaemacs 2.0p2.

In Carbon Emacs (Emacs.app) and /usr/bin/emacs everything works fine.
As a workaround I set in .emacs (Homedir) the following lines:
(setenv "LC_CTYPE" "de_DE.UTF-8")
(setenv "LANG" "de_DE.UTF-8")

With this lines Aquaemacs 2.0p2 is fine too.

Greetings, Uwe
