Copy'paste from Konqueror to OpenOffice doesn't go well with special locale chars (e.g. æ ø å )

My girlfriend is having trouble copy'pasting from Konqueror to
OpenOffice. The Danish special characters "æ ø å" show up as weird
characters upon pasting them into OpenOffice.
When I come to think of it, it looks pretty much like when viewing an
UTF-8 encoded file with a non-UTF-8 viewer.
She can circumvent the problem by pasting into KWrite first and then do
a copy'paste from KWrite to OpenOffice, but she is pretty unhappy with
having to do that extra step all the time.
I can reproduce the problem on my Kubuntu laptop as well. Not on my
Sarge and Sid machines, though.
Is anybody else having such problems?
