I use most (export PAGER=most) besides more and less. But I have
no problems with any of them. Some times I was using
export LESSCHARSET=latin1 (even if I need latin2)
but wat solved my problem was to set up corectly the locales.

man -L de man shows 8bit characters.
I use less 358, more 5.19 (Berkeley 6/29/88), and most 4.9.0.

I hope this help.
