By default my OGR open dialog was set to UTF8. Trying other encodings
didn't make a difference.
Interestingly enough, Tim S. tried my binaries/libs on his box when
this problem first popped up and he experienced the crash as well.
I'm not certain how this relates to encoding. Is there a default
somewhere for the system that is set wrong?
You can download a data set that I'm using from: http://gisalaska.com/
But I have this problem with every shapefile.
Thanks for your help!!
