No, there's definitely something wrong.  Look at the images this time, 
all from rc3 on WinXP SP3:

* test-1:

I've selected a dive without a rating.  The rating box is completely 
blank, i.e. " " is used as blank stars.  The rating menu, however, shows 
unicode stars.

* test-2:

I've chosen three stars as rating.  The rating box shows unicode stars 
this time.

* test-3:

I've pressed OK to store the dive.  The rating is not saved.  Also see 
that the dive menu header shows a "*", i.e. a non-unicode star.

Something's messed up, it seems.
