Thanks a lot for clarification about Athena widgets.  I roughly
remembered things like this, but I wasn't sure.

I'm not telling about the content of the terminal (the VT), but about
menus. And _they_ currently don't work in UTF-8 mode, even via the
uxterm script. Now, with your clarifications, I just set *international
to true, and now it works!

Well, it does work for XTerm at least.
