Does this work on an xterm (or anything else then the FreeBSD console) with 
correct LANG variable set?
The FreeBSD console does not work with utf-8 (yet), allthough I would not 
think it should affect printf's character counting, still.....it haunts me.

Problem with today's modular software: they start with the modules
