Platform: SuSE RPMs

Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.5)
Installed from: SuSE RPMs
When I receive an email without character set definition then kmail shows an rectangle for each unknown character. That's OK for me but the editor doesn't handle these correctly. It seems the editor sees less characters in that line than it shows. This makes it quite difficult to erase or correct the problematic characters. Pressing the end of line key does not put the cursor at the end but somewhere within the last word (depending on the count of problematic characters in that line).
