r.support metadata: accents not supported in some fields

Description

g.copy rast=elevation,myelev
r.support myelev source1="Tést of aççented chàracters" description="Tést of aççented chàracters" history="Tést of aççented chàracters" title="Tést of aççented chàracters"

comments="r.proj input="ned03arcsec" location="northcarolina_latlong" mapset="\helena" output="elev_ned10m" method="cubic" resolution=10Tést of aççented chàracters"

i.e. accents are supported in title and comments, but not in source or in description.

This last point, also creates an issue with the default description, which contains a translatable string, which in French is translated using accents:

#: ../lib/raster/history.c:235
#, c-format
msgid "generated by %s"
msgstr "généré par %s"

Which results in

"gnr par".

Is there any way to allow accents in these fields ? If not, then I guess the default description string should not be translatable, and the info should at least be mentioned in the man page.

Here are my locale settings:
