This is the debug output I told you about in my previous mail.  Did
you include 2>/dev/null.  Perhaps I did not use stderr, can you try
adding >/dev/null too?

But was it caused by the relative path?  It works now?

Oh, my fault.  I think that old version requires you to start the
console client where the "Compose" file can be found.

The fonts are loaded using the vga plugin, see:

The encoding is explained there too.  Just using UTF-8 in the console
server.  (settrans -afgp /dev/vcs /hurd/console --encoding=UTF-8)

Set your own locate to a UTF-8 locale as well and start the console
client.  There are still some problems with this, the console client
does not correctly switch to the right locale, I'll fix this soon.
This will cause that locale dependent capitalization not working

But how well does it work now?  Same for the Russian keymap and
output, etc?
