There seems to be an issue since the following commit:
(the commit directly preceeding this one doesn't compile)
which causes invocations such as 'loadkeys -u' or 'dumpkeys | loadkeys
-u' to not work correctly in utf8 mode (after for example unicode_start).
The last working (and able to compile easily) commit where loadkeys
works fine is
For example consider:
loadkeys -u pl
This will produce correct output (e.g. alt+l) on builds up to commit
Afterwards it will behave as if the keymap wasn't translated to unicode
and followed charset specification from the keymap file itself. This (in
this particular case) requries - to behave correctly:
setfont -m 8859-2 LatArCyrHeb-16
Despite full utf8/unicode mode.
I earlier sent similar message w/o subscribing to the mailing list, so
just disregard it.
