SubjectRe: [PATCH]console:UTF-8 mode compatibility fixes

Doesn't work here with linux-2.6.16-rc3-mm1, ncurses-5.5. BTW has this
been discussed with Thomas Dickey (ncurses maintainer)?

Works.

Another feature request / bug report (spotted while viewing in Lynx a
page containing English text and a few Chinese characters, artificial
testcase attached):

If ncurses attempt to add some Chinese character to the Linux text
screen, Linux (correctly) prints this replacement character and advances
the cursor by one position. Ncurses think that the cursor has moved two
positions forward. The effect is that when you view the testcase in Lynx
(compiled --with-screen=ncursesw) on Linux console and press PageDown,
the fourth line contains "Thek" instead of "The" in the end.

This disagreement has to be solved somehow.

UTF-8 input issues (fixed by a patch originally from
http://chris.heathens.co.nz/linux/utf8.html) are also outstanding.

Not adding my own signed-off-by line here because the acs part doesn't work.
