Yeah, I went through a few years ago and poked each layer of my own
ssh-screen-mutt/irssi chain to do the UTF-8 thing, because I needed to
have both Japanese and ascii-with-accents on the screen at once
(something codepage flipping Just Can't Do).  You end up needing to
completely restart screen and all session windows, despite all the
documents hinting that you can just re-attach with -U.

I'll try to write up how I finally shook it all out sometime.  It's
mostly just irritating.

BitKeeper, how quaint.                         Nick Moffitt
