Workaround for screenshot error: "cannot be converted to ISO-8859-1 encoding"

Someone reported the error when saving a screenshot:
"Error saving screenshot: Value for PNG text chunk CREATOR cannot 
be converted to ISO-8859-1 encoding"

I got the same error on a FreeRunner OM2007.2 upgraded yesterday.

The screen capture porgram (gpe-scap) fails to open /lib/, 
so I solved with:

ln -s /lib/

Should someone open a bug?
