Description of problem:
pyDict is unable to display the definitions for simple words like "apple",
"cup", etc.  It turns out that, during the to 0.3.0 transition, the
iconv runs were incomplete: some of the original Big5 [acklmqsuvw].lib had
errors, and iconv only converted part of these files to UTF-8, i.e. truncated
them.  Thanks to my friend Tung Tak-Fu for the detailed analysis.

I have then went ahead and fixed these errors, and at the same time merged some
other fixes from the pydict- package that I maintain for Debian.  The
fixed [a-z].lib files are available at:

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open pyDict (0.3.0 series)
2. Search for "apple".  Not found!
3. Look in /usr/share/pydict/a.lib
