I worked on this yesterday, and discovered that the UTF-8 characters
will be properly displayed if d-i/build/graphic.utf is printed in the
I also discovered that whiptail also got the same problem. Check out
<URL:http://bugs.debian.org/187704> for the bug report and a test
script. I belive the problem is in slang, failing to convert the
linux termcap values for linedrawing into UTF-8.
I hope the newt maintainer know more and will reply quickly. :)
