Description of problem:
When I try write some czech characters (ISO8859-2; list of problems characters
in TeX syntax: \v e, \v s, \v z, \'a, \'\i, \'e), there some strange things

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open some terminal with tcsh
2. If you have czech keyboard :-( (installed with RH7.3), press some key with
ISO8859-2 character, e.g. key "2" which means "\v e" character.
3. See result and then press same key second time.

Actual Results:  After first pressing appeared space.
After second pressing appeared two "\v e" characters.
So it is impossible to write one "\v e" character (and other characters
described before). This means that, we cannot write almost none czech characters
in tcsh and this is terrible! :-(

Additional info:

I try different terminals gnome-term, xterm, but it always happened. Under bash
is all corect. One my colleague said, that tcsh uncorrectly means, that
ISO8859-2 is doublebyte coding system, and it isn't.

There is some info, it may be helpfull:


$ rpm -qi tcsh

Quick fix:

unset dspmbyte

(e.g. in your .cshrc of .tcshrc).

It seems there is a bug in tcsh-6.10.00-dspmbyte.patch (reversed condition
or something similar, but I think that !strncasecmp did not work for me).
