I think Gerd was mistaken.  locale-coding-system indeed has no
influence on decoding of keyboard input.  The doc string is correct,
AFAIK: it only influences the messages produced by strerror, perror,
and other similar facilities.  Unless _I_ am mistaken, that is ;-)

I think you are right, especially since you told in the beginning of
this thread that Unicode input works for you in "emacs -nw".

Probably.  Unfortunately, I don't know enough about X input of
non-ASCII characters, so we'll have to wait until Handa-san wakes up
tomorrow morning (Japanese time ;-).

Thanks for working on this problem.
