To fix your problem, you just have to add 'linux|' before your
console/con80x25 definition in your termcap file. I have no idea why a
Linux terminal definition is needed, but this will solve your problem.

The main problem I'm having with version 1.3.3 is that all my ISO
characters are beeing replaced with IBMPC characters. What happens is that
all extended characters are replaced with greec characters (ie. character
e' is beeing replaced by a theta, etc, etc...).

Does anyone have a solution or this is the way it should be?
