Hello, I have fix for a bug in the file that needs to go into the product.


To reproduce the issue you need to enter either "¸" or " ˘ " into the username field of the fastpath webchat. When you use these characters and click the "Send Message" button it will not connect to an agent.

Dubugging the source code showed that openfire server was not capable of handling there characters.

These are just two example characters that didn't work but there are many and is therefore an important fix for a multilingual product.


I have attached a patch for this and using I'm using version 3.6.4.


Let me know if you need more information.
