I try it on latest Nevada build and I'm not able to reproduce. Some bugs
seems are related to the Advanced Server which I don't have installed.
And of course I don't have Chines keyboard ;-).

It is good to know that GCC on Sparc is buggy and slow. I seen also that
some issue are reported on old S10 version. You should retest it on
latest version of S10 which is update 7. At least S10U4 contains libxml
which is required.

You can look
http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/sfw/usr/src/lib/wxwidgets/
We build it with the latest SUN Studio. For S10 we used older Sun
Studio. Both works fine as well.

Are they sparc specific because you don't have x86 Solaris 9 or does it
really problem on the Sparc build.

You can see how pgadmin is built on Solaris. I commit 1.10 today and it
should be visible tomorrow
