bugzilla gave an internal server error, so here is the bug:

less behaves like it cannot understand multibyte characters in a search. It can
display them.

$ echo "Apache" > test-file
$ less test-file

Press / to start the search.
Type Apache, press enter.
It works.

Press / to start the search.
Type Ä
now press delete because it's the wrong character.
Type Apache, press enter.
No match.

Confirmed that the less-382 behaves as described. The new less-394 now contains
much more enhanced support for UTF-8 and doesn't have this bug. I'll close this
as soon as I release FC updates for less-394.

P.S. The incoming messy emails from bugzilla made me really seriously thinking
that something's really wrong with less ;) From the first guess it was at least
50 new bugs!
Comment 4 Fedora Update System 2006-01-09 13:41:49 EST
From User-Agent: XML-RPC

less-394-1.fc4 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue.  If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.

Aha! So that was what the upgrade was for! XML-RPC is in use! Does this mean we
get upstream-bugzilla bug tracking?

Anyway, thanks very much for the fix!
