I tried your test, but the passwords work OK (never used 'em before.) I'm
running 0.27-pre and using the Steppes 1.10 theme. $LANG and $LC_ALL
are both set to en_US.UTF-8.

I looked at recgrouppassword before testing and it had 1 line (for
'All Programs'.) After adding, then deleting the password via the GUI,
that table was empty.
