Hi,

it seems the expand(1) command does not properly support multi-byte
characters.

tschmidt@sl-vm-redmine01:~$ echo $LANG
de_DE.UTF-8
tschmidt@sl-vm-redmine01:~$ cat test.txt
Text    ohne    Umlaute
Täxt    müt     Umläuten
tschmidt@sl-vm-redmine01:~$ expand test.txt
Text    ohne    Umlaute
Täxt   müt    Umläuten

Using Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS with coreutils 8.21-1ubuntu.

Regards,
Tilman
