When a plugin produces output containing latin-1 encoded characters, these are transparently handled by the core and forwarded to the notification engine. The notifications are already sent out correctly, but the RBN configuration dialog was not able to display these notifications when using the Analyse function. This lead to exceptions.

The GUI has now been fixed to also support latin-1 encoded notification information.

However, better write your plugins to output UTF-8 encoded characters.
