Oh! I think that I understood the problem: if HAVE_WCSFTIME is not defined, timemodule.c uses strftime(), instead of wcsftime(), encode input format and decode the format. It uses UTF-8 to encode/decode, whereas the right encoding is the locale encoding. Attached patch should fix this issue.

@Antoine: Do you have any idea why HAVE_WCSFTIME was not defined?

wcsftime() is defined in <wchar.h> on Ubuntu. In configure, it is tested using AC_CHECK_FUNCS(wcsftime)
