OK, I have now installed a completely clean vile 9.6j on my fedora 7
system at work.  It's a new installation (since the disk failure) so
it's a complete build and install from scratch.

After remembering to add the "set file-encoding=utf-8" vile is now
working OK with utf-8 pound signs, thank you!

There is one minor issue, iso-8859-1 pound signs cause some confusion.
They are displayed as pound signs but confuse the cursor positioning.
Shouldn't they be shown as 'invalid character'?

The cursor positioning should (is supposed to) work.

For testing this set of changes, I made a test-file using xterm and typing each combination of meta+[a-zA-Z]. That doesn't include the pound sign,
but it should be in the same 160-255 range.

Perhaps there's something amiss with the character-class for the pound sign - will see.

(by the way - on Solaris I got good results using the terminfo driver.
curses might work if it's linked with the xpg4 library, though I know
that library has some breakage in the time-delays).

Now to patch all my viles to 9.6j!

at the moment there's a tarball in

which is fully patched.  (binaries are a different matter).
