Well, that answers *that* question. :-)

So the locale's encoding should probably be UTF-8, given that it's OS X.

However, if LANG is blank, you presumably don't have Terminal set up to "Set local enviornment variables on startup" (Preferences > Settings > Advanced, at the bottom); I think I turned that on a while ago, perhaps to get some UN*X software to correctly handle UTF-8.  Just out of curiosity, if you set that (or if you explicitly set LANG to something appropriate ending in ".UTF-8", whether it's no_NO.UTF-8, nn_NO.UTF-8, nb_NO.UTF-8, en_NO.UTF-8, or some other setting), does that make the GUI problem go away with a version of Wireshark *without* the



(Whether it has other side-effects is another matter; it might, for example, affect the parsing and output of numbers and dates, for better or for worse.)
