That's not the intended semantics; see
<https://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/ticket/778#comment:175>.
Of course you can always set shares.happy equal to shares.needed, which will
have a similar effect (or at least will once
<https://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/ticket/1130> is fixed).

The mailing list doesn't butcher Unicode; that's your font I think.
(I'm guessing it's not your mail client per se, unless there's a problem
specific to message display, because your reply is tagged correctly as
UTF-8 and preserved the bigender character in my sig.) You can probably
set your mail client to use a more complete Unicode font.
