Which "current modconf breakage" is this?

You'll have to be more specific about what you are doing.  If you mean that
you are just sending Latin1 characters to bterm, this is not supposed to work -
it's a UTF-8 terminal.  If you mean that you are sending the UTF-8 equivalent
of a character from the latin1 set, and it's not showing up, then that certainly
is a bug but you need to give an example of the character in question and
what the environment is.
