Not a PR, but here are some details (below). Let me say that I do *not*
see the problem on NetBSD that I do see on Linux (hence no PR).
What I have on Linux:
* nvi from pkgsrc, :version says:
Version nvi-1.81.6 (2007-11-18) The CSRG, University of California, Berkeley.
* A file witn an Latin1 encoded German umlaut (hex code 0xe4, HTML
* LANG and LC_* not set
* run "nvi file"
* :w, and get:
Conversion error on line 27.
Error: u: Invalid or incomplete multibyte or wide character.
u: WARNING: FILE TRUNCATED.
* After that, both the file on disk and in the editor has 26 lines.
I can *not* reproduce this on NetBSD, same nvi version. Thomas, you said
NetBSD has a problem in that area - can you give details?
