BTW: anyone is working on UFT-8 support for ncurses(w) backend ?

I don't think so, and I don't think it is worth it. Maintaining two backends
IMHO just causes headaches while it doesn't make mc better. I still can't
see why developers do not decide which one to use and drop the other one.

If someone want ask which backend is more importand and will be better keep as major IMO answer tn this kind question is very simple:

# rpm -q --whatrequires | grep -v slang | wc -l
# rpm -q --whatrequires | grep -v ncurses |wc -l

Above slang list contain only packages which do not have now ncurses backend and are not importand as mc :) Also current state have other sick points on Linux. In case using mc with gpm it causes runtime linking with more than one term toolkit library (slang or internal slang and ncurses used by libgpm).

[mc]$ for i in po/*.po; do msgconv -t UTF-8 $i -o $i; done

Are you sure it is safe to use the same output file? I'd rather use a tmp

I'm sure. msgconv cumulates output in memory and aftewr finish conversion writes output to file name passed in -o parameter in single step.
