Under what conditions? If I set my keyboard to Greek, for example, so
that I'm entering only non-ASCII characters with most keystrokes,
uxterm faithfully shows Greek characters (with eightBitInput: false).
Sorry if I'm being obtuse, but I'd like to home in at the very least
on an extremely clear explanation for the docs.
