OK, this might very well apply to you, I didn't notice that you are not
using a non-UTF-8 locale in the first place. I filled this ticket
because another user has been having problems with quick view, but
apparently it applies to mcview as well, he just didn't notice it.

Also this doesn't really have to do with executing binary files, but
rather incorrect on-screen position calculations for single-byte
non-alphanumeric characters.

Unfortunately, we can't release right now, it will take us some
time to merge all the changes, but it would be nice if you could report
back if this fixes the issue after the package is updated.

Thank you for your help!
