 Please apply [http://www.suse.de/~bk/pine/4.64/2006-02-23/bigpatch.diff
 this patch] to pine-4.64 so that it can display messages correctly in
 UTF-8 locales. Right now, it displays (for example) this:
 The following text is in the "ISO-8859-1" character set.
 Your display is set for the "UTF-8" character set.
 Some characters may be displayed incorrectly.

 and indeed, invalid UTF-8 is sent to the screen instead of such
 characters. Russian KOI8-R-encoded mail messages are displayed as a
 sequence of "invalid character" boxes because of this. The patch
 completely fixes the issue.

 More details: http://www.suse.de/~bk/pine/FAQ.html.

 This patch has no negative effects in non-UTF-8 locales, and, according to
 dev/2006-April/014534.html this resolution], has to be applied
 unconditionally (OTOH, with Nano, we already broke this resolution).
