Yikes 8-o

Thanks to you both: you taught me something. I wouldn't have expected
that desktop environments can become so messed up.

A couple of years ago or five, I switched back to xterm (from a random
walk which included gnome-terminal at some point). Xterm had fixed its
UTF-8 problems, could use modern fonts and all that.

Reading your accounts remimds me why I probably won't look back!

Cheers
