From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.10) Gecko/20050720 Fedora/1.0.6-1.1.fc4 Firefox/1.0.6

Description of problem:
news/pan2 port badly wraps long lines if they contains national symbols (and therefore are internally represented in UTF-8)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I have not verified this bug yet.

Additional info:

e-mail from bug reporter:

It seems that the version of Pan newsreader in Fedora 4 Extras has a bug
with line wrap when typing in languages other than English. It wraps
lines at column 40 approximately. I found on the web that the developers
have released a patch resolving this. Could you include this patch in
your FC4 package?
I would do it myself, but I really don't know how.

I found your email address in the pan.spec file of
pan- and I thought you are the maintainer of
this package.

I m asking this because this usability bug affects a lot of people and
not just me.
Thank you

Here is a test rpm with patch applied

It works fine. I added several keyboard layouts and tested line wrapping. I
could not reproduce the bug. Line wrapping works the same for all the languages
that I have tried.
