Description of problem:
When console is in UTF-8 mode deleting the multi byte characters (mostly
accented characters) by backspace causes deleting two or three character
depending on the character. I tryed it with hu_HU.UTF8 locale and hu keyboard map.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Load an UTF-8 locale
2. Try to type and delete some accented character
Actual Results: Deleting accented characters by backspace causes deleting two
or three character depending on the character
Expected Results: Deleting accented characters by backspace causes deleting
only the character, not more
In normal (not UTF-8) console mode accented characters and backspace works normally.
This has been fixed in rawhide.
