[pygtk] gtk.Builder and translation encoding

When gtk.Builder gets a translation for <property translatable="yes"> it
displays it correctly only in UTF-8 locale. C gtk programs are fixed by
adding bind_textdomain_codeset(domain, "utf-8"); I tried to call python
bind_textdomain_codeset, but it didn't help. Here is complete testcase:

import gtk
from locale import *
from gettext import bind_textdomain_codeset

setlocale(LC_ALL, '')
bind_textdomain_codeset("libc", "UTF-8")
Builder = gtk.Builder()
"""<?xml version="1.0"?>
<interface><object class="GtkDialog" id="dialog">
<property name="title" translatable="yes">Success</property>
Dialog = Builder.get_object("dialog")
Dialog.resize(300, 100)
