The version of gnucash in Dapper is 1.8.12, which cannot handle utf-8 
characters.  Start it with "LANG=en_US.iso-8859-1 gnucash" (or if you 
are not in the US, use an appropriate locale).  I think Edgy has gnucash 
2.0, or if you are feeling brave you can try downloading the source code 
from gnucash.org.

Backed up the system lately?
