Description Michael Schwendt 2002-07-30 16:30:53 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020724

Description of problem:
Probably related to bug #70124 or slang.

Open a new file and type a text which contains several German umlaut characters.
With each umlaut the cursor advances a second column.

Upper-case umlaut characters yield an even more weird behaviour and cause lines
to disappear or the cursor to be moved to line 1 column 1.

Whether in virtual console or in an xterm, doesn't make a difference. Different
language setting didn't change a thing either.

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n 

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Since bugzilla is plain ASCII, it wouldn't accept 8-bit ISO Latin-1 (or ISO
Latin-0) characters. Proceed as described above.

No progress in Fedora Core.

jed doesn't really support UTF-8 cleanly, and won't until slang-2.0.
