gcc weirdness

I've been using gcc on several platforms for quite some time, and have noticed a fairly glaring, recurrent error.

noreset.c: In function â:
noreset.c:149: warning: unused variable â
noreset.c:148: warning: unused variable â

Notice how the function and variable names have all been replaced with the single character â? If this just happened on one machine, I would assume there was a little glitch somewhere or an arcane configuration problem. I asked around some, and the only person who offered a suggestion said he thought it had something to do with X11 support. Buh?

Am I the only one who sees this behaviour? If so, I'm bewildered, as I see it on a bunch of different unrelated machines. If not, how has such a frequent and obvious problem been allowed to persist?
