This is a long-standing problem, which drives me nuts.
I'd love to see a fix for it.  The only other work-around
I've found is to link against lesstif, which handles the
characters perfectly and doesn't require any messing
with $LANG (which, as you say, will affect the underlying
program a great deal).

The problem lies somewhere in Motif, or in the way DDD
calls Motif.

I've not found any info on the web explaining how to do
I18N properly with Motif.  I have the the two most important
references, the Motif books from O'Reilly, and they don't
mention it.
