Drag and Drop: watch out for the GtkSelectionData::set_text() contents


A few days ago I was confronted with a weird trouble. That my string that I used which has some typical french characters in it changed to ugly thing like \u009 instead of é. I also discovered that other people who used the serialize() function on GtkSelectionData also encountered some weird things.

So today I found the solution the GtkSelectiondata object works with URI strings. All you have to do is encode your string with the function urlencode($your_string);.
