Check your locale settings, and whether the config program is using a different locale. If it has a configuration file associated with it, check if there is a locale setting.

Start it from the terminal. Do you see a message reporting that it can't resolve system encoding and is defaulting to something else? If that is the case, install support for that encoding, or look into why your system encoding is causing a problem. For example, LANG=en_GB.UTF8 won't work, but LANG=en_GB.UTF-8 will.

Enter the command "locale" to examine your locale settings. Look at the value of your LC_* variables.
env | grep LC_

Look in /etc/sysconfig/language if this file exists. Do you see any errors?
