Cyrillic text broken in messages to ICQ7 clients

Description

Encoding is broken and unreadable in messages to ICQ7 clients. All other clients receives messages normally (may be Encoding Autodetection in client works?).

Encoding is set to "windows-1251" in Gateway settings.

Some information from the Internet:
"
Setting encoding in ICQ Transport to "default" (iso-8859-1) resolves problem with ICQ7 clients, but messages from to other clients are "broken".
"
"
PyICQt seems to have no such problem because of embedded encoding detection mechanism
"

Environment

OF 3.6.4

Reopening due to a report that it's still having issues, and patch to fix it. =D

There are other problems with encodings in situations such as offline messaging with different clients. I have a patch to joscar here http://dl.dropbox.com/u/18436260/OscarTools.patch .

Just adding a note to self that iso-8859-1 is required for this to work, and that I may need to consider enforcing that in the future. (ie removing the option)

Yes, 1.1.3b3 SOLVES the issue.
Requirement is ENCODING SET TO "iso-8859-1" in ICQ transport settings.
