Replace Linux with FreeBSD 4.2, PuTTY with TeraTerm Pro + TTSH,
Hungarian with French accentuated characters and you will have the
same symptoms. I didn't bothered much to fix the problem, but at least
I can type accentuated chars in bash with this ~/.inputrc :
rguyom_(_at_)_satanas ~ # cat .inputrc
set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
I didn't tried to fix the problem with joe, but I noticed that
FreeBSD's /usr/local/lib/joe/joerc is quite different than what the
OpenBSD port installs.
