Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.5-1~exp5
Severity: normal
Tags: l10n

The internal mc viewer incorrectly displays UTF-8 man pages. For example
the /usr/share/man/pl/man8/apt.8.gz man page is displayed as:

         apt - Zaawansowane narz.dzie zarz.dzania pakietami


whereas it should be: 

         apt - Zaawansowane narzędzie zarządzania pakietami


I've just tried replacing all those `-Tlatin1' with `-Tutf8' in
/usr/lib/mc/ext.d/text.sh, but it didn't worked:

         apt - Zaawansowane narzÄdzie zarzÄdzania pakietami
