Game crashes when typing "ö" with VirtualGL drivers

Noticed in Alpha 20 but Alpha 19 also yields the same result.

The game crashes whenever non ascii characters such as ö,á, etc are inserted, even ~, ' alone, not only in the in-game chat but in the lobby as well.

To reproduce the error, just type these characters any of these text fields.

Crash report:

Short video:

Both tested versions were build from source and are running on a Debian based distro.

Can't reproduce on Ubuntu 15.04 with any of the releases/svn version, at least with ö.

It is strange that this crashes in OsString / os_path.h though since that is used for directory/filenames.

I have no problem with typing ö on my USA-international keyboard layout (on which I have to type a dead ¨ followed by a regular o). And I'm on Arch Linux.

So I don't know whether it's Debian having problems, or it doesn't work with a German keyboard where the ö is a default key.

Second thought: é is a regular key, and the game doesn't crash on that, so it should be something Debian-specific I guess.

I did more testing and I noticed that it crashes when I'm running it with virtualgl drivers in bumblebee. If I run the game without bumblebee and no graphics acceleration it doesn't crash.

This problem seems to happen with other applications as well, but it is not consistent. I tested the chat in the game Xonotic, also running it with bumblebee, and I got the same error on terminal. While everything worked normally on several other applications (tested on proprietary Unity engine games and gtk applications).

So it must be a bug in that VirtualGL version then.
