I've serious issues to reproduce this on a local machine. Is it possible, that
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=419660 describes your issue a
bit more precisely? Or can you please come up with more details?

Comment 2 Robert Scheck 2009-12-13 16:12:16 UTC
Looks like what you are describing is bug #192287 for iptraf. Well, I could
relink iftop from curses to cursesw; if you then export NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1
before starting iftop, the line drawing will match.

That's it, that's exactly what I'm talking about.

Comment 4 Robert Scheck 2010-04-01 13:27:38 UTC
I've made a patch which works around the PuTTY issue (doesn't honor vt100
line-drawing when in UTF-8 mode) to get sane lines drawn instead of letters. 
When using PuTTY in UTF-8 mode, you have to execute "NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS=1 
iftop" in the future.
