Is this a bug in mc or am i doing something wrong?

mc doesn't support Unicode yet.  It assumes that all characters are 1 cell
wide and consist of one byte.  I believe multibyte support would be needed
for correct input and also for correct output, at least in some situations
(e.g. in the editor).

Please keep in mind that some translations were contributed when mc had a
GUI frontend and I'm not sure the text edition was even tested in the
Japanese locale.
