Yes, my native language is Russian.

I look at prog/.

For my opinion, user of Aspell opinion, there are two things must be done
to using utf-8 correctly in aspell:

1) Fix the not understandable inverse of misspelled word (only first word
inverse correctly, after that I see some shit).

2)Truncate strings correctly.

First problem I solved:
in check_funs.cpp
function void display_misspelled_word()


because of curses can not correctly work with multi-bytes characters on virtual screen
and 8-bits characters on physical screen.

There are some problems my realisation of curses(ncurses) with utf-8. They,
of course may be solved, but I don't think that must be done on the level of
program, it's problems of library(curses).

Now, Aspell works fine with my locale(ru_RU.UTF-8).

It would be good if you commit my changes in the project.

With regards,

No, not at the time.

Than look in the prog/ directory of Aspell.  This is the source for the 
Aspell utility.

It is converted to an internal coding that is 8-bit.  The encoding used 
depends on the encoding of the dictionary.
