gpdf error (GLib-CRITICAL (g_utf8_validate))

If I try to run gpdf as user, this is what I get:

[pavolo@localhost ~]$ gpdf descr-formul.pdf

(gpdf:4723): GLib-CRITICAL **: file gutf8.c: line 1537 (g_utf8_validate): assertion `str != NULL' failed

plus an error window indicating that "the application gpdf has quit unexpectedly." If I press "restart application", the same error comes again and the application freezes there (of course I'm trying to run it from the command line) until I ctrl-C it.

Now, the weird part is that I can run the program if I do it as root:

[pavolo@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost pavolo]# gpdf descr-formul.pdf

(gpdf:4750): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.

and it opens as it used to do (the warning is new, but it doesn't mean much, does it?:confused: )

Searching trough the web I found some hints that involved -as expected- UTF-8, keyboard layouts, etc., but what really puzzles me is that those are system-wide confs, and therefore should affect the same the root and the users...

Can anybody point what's causing the error, and what should I do to solve it?
