Patch for xt-mouse beyond column 94

Subject: Patch for xt-mouse beyond column 94

A rather old bug with mouse support in emacs-nw still lives in 21.2. The
symptom is described in
(full text pasted later in this email)

The bug is reproducible at least on the GNU/Linux operating system.

The root cause of this is that the read-char function doesn't return the
expected result for ASCII values above 127. I have provided a rather
inelegant patch that contains a wrapper, read-8bit-char, over read-char
which addresses this instance of the problem. If a similar function or
better solution already exists, please make me aware of it so I can revise
the patch.

Full bug report:

From: Eli Tziperman (eli@beach.weizmann.ac.il)
Subject: problem using xterm-mouse beyond column 94 in an xterm window
Newsgroups: gnu.emacs.bug
Date: 1998/02/15

In GNU Emacs 20.1.1 (mips-sgi-irix6.2, X toolkit)
 of Thu Sep 18 1997 on beach
configured using `configure  --with-gcc'
Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
1) I start a wide xterm window:
   xterm -geometry 100x25&
2) I start xterm-mouse-mode
3) I create a line that is 100 characters long
   (e.g. using C-u 1 0 0 =)
4) I click with the left mouse button on this line in order to
   position the cursor there.
--> when the position on which I click is beyond column 94, this does
--> not result in a repositioning of the cursor, but instead tmm is
--> activated as if I pressed on the menu bar.
