lazarus menue-items with german umlauts are invisible


my OS is SuSE Linux 9.3 with KDE as windowmanager and german as dafault language. Although I tried serveral settings menue-items with german umlauts remain invisible. Starting lazarus from bash results with the following messages:

" /home/georg/.kde/share/config/gtkrc:37: error: unexpected identifier `gtk-altern                         ative-button-order', expected keyword - e.g. `style'
TApplication.IconChanged - TODO: convert this implementation in gtk                          or win32

Is my problem a result of wrong gtk-settings? Or is there a problem of wrong settings of lazarus

I've got more or less the same problem trying to use some characters in breton-based programs like 'Ñ'.  The code editor refuses them even when the font I use (courier) has got them. I made a test trying to find a way round, using #XXXX :
procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
var xx : char;
  xx:= #209;                    // code for 'Ñ', 0X00D1 in hexa
  Label1.Caption:= xx;

To no avail : at first run the prog displays a plain 'N' instead of the expected character. I tried to change the Label's font property to 'nimbus' just to see, knowing that Ñ belongs to this font. It was worse : my window displayed a big 'C' whenI ran the program... I'im runing Lazarus under mandriva 2005 LE and KDE.

Thanks for your help
