Thanks.  I've done most of my testing with ja_JP.UTF-8 (with xterm).
I spent some time looking at mlterm (it had some odd refresh problems
that didn't seem to be my bugs).  Related to the Redhat bug I mentioned
a while ago, I experimented with converting the ja.po file to UTF-8,
but didn't see that changed the messages (since - I'm told - on Linux
glibc can do the conversion).  ncursesw "should" work properly with
ja_JP.eucJP -

I'm guessing that my fixes are incomplete - and this is causing the effect
you're seeing.  Lynx contains some logic to handle UTF-8 specially.  I
haven't removed that, but added logic (or ifdef's) for the ncursesw setup
which bypassed most of Lynx's special UTF-8 logic.  (I said "most", since
I did notice some odd corners which were not exercised by the options form
and other pages that I used for testing).

I'll setup some testing with kterm and see if I can see the same effect
as that which you are seeing.
