I think Blars was complaining about the differences in the xterm
terminfo entry between versions.  This is, indeed, an annoying problem,
though I've never heard of it breaking xterm compatibility *completely*.

The issue in this thread was that the terminfo caps acsc, enacs, smacs and
rmacs need to change when in UTF-8.  (I posed this to Dickey; he said he'd
have to think about it and I'm waiting for a further response.)  I do think
this should be handled differently, since it can (theoretically) apply to
any terminal type.  Having to make a terminal type for terminals with UTF-8
enabled would be a mess.
