The patch works for me. Unpatched sources exhibit the bug,
patched does not. Tested with iso-8859-2 encoded file and 
iso-8859-2 locale.

BTW the charset switching in the viewer [after applying tty.diff patch]
works correctly here. I tested 'no-translation', 'iso-8859-2',
'windows 1250' and 'cp 852' and it converts the viewed file
correctly in all cases.
