Oh, konsole? No idea, as I don't use KDE. I saw your mentions of font
problems elsewhere in this thread. Have you tried, say, uxterm with a
known-good UTF-8 font? I use
'-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-*-iso10646-1' on my work

Have you seen bug #191985?

That's going to depend on the man page. I'm sure that if you look at the
man page source you'll find that - is affected while \- isn't.
