I haven't tested that, to be perfectly honest. I did more of a 'proof of
concept' thing, just as a sanity check.
I believe there is some formulation, which is explained somewhere in the
documentation. Try searching the Net for "gimp make grid system".

The different encodings of text, I believe, are often causing inconsistencies
as such. In distributions with tighter integration this is less likely to
recur. Lego just doesn't also merge with Playmobil.
LyX comes to mind as another application where this may happen. Firefox is
possibly another. It is sometimes helpful if you use an intermediatery
application like a text editor which preserves or converts text to an
impartial encoding. Try to propagate the text through another (third)
application and see if it resolves this issue.
