I have recently started to port an MS-DOS program written in Clipper to
Linux using xHarbour. When I run it under konsole, border characters are
rendered as alien alphabet characters and Function key 5 seems to get
trapped before it reaches the program.

Running it at the command line from run level 3, it works fine. Is there any
way that I can get it to run properly under kde?

I am using Mandriuva Linux 2008.1
