Closing with release of 1.13.6. Please let us know if this is still an issue.

It's not Russian, but I can type non-Latin characters via Alt+keypad combinations.

I wasn't able to test this, but I suspect any lingering issues will be resolved with the upcoming SDL2 build.

Another developer tried to reproduce it with and had no problems entering Russian text. Did it work before for you or has it never worked before?

How to reproduce: set russian or other non-latin X keyboard layout and try to type anywhere in the game (chat, set labels, save name).

I guess it's something with keyboard input driver, because russian text can be pasted from clipboard without problems.

The bug occurs both in full-screen and window mode.

Tested on 1.10.3 (debian testing) and 1.10.5 (debian experimental).

Nothing unusual in console output:
