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.
