Description of problem:
pico editor is broken for CJK multibytes and really shameless
because RHL product manuals explains how to use pico but
Asian users cannot use it.
A Patch is available.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

Multibyte fix for pico
Patch added to pine 4.44-4 in rawhide.
This patch is way broken with pine: the word-wrapping is broken, backspace on
first column does not bring the text up one line, and pine crashes when writing
Indeed. Patch removed from pine-4.44-6 release for stabilization.
At this point I will not permit this patch to be included as it can
interfere with the standard operation of PINE. Such enhancements
should be made by submitting patches to the PINE team themselves.
Thanks terbak for tracking the wordwrap problem down.
I'll continue for the future product release.
Closing bug WONTFIX
pine/pico aren't true open source software, and dedicating resources
to issues like this isn't a priority because of that, in particular
when there are tonnes of other editors available that can be used
