try to type or read any non latin char in chat message (didnt tried in other codepage than iso8859-13)

for input maybe this:

/**************************** PATCHED by Flier ******************************/
                                static time_t lastkeypress = 0;

                                if (lastkeypress == 0) lastkeypress = time(NULL);
                                else {
                                    time_t timenow = time(NULL);

                                    if (timenow - lastkeypress > 2) {
                                        /* Probably bad input encoding, ignore bad bytes! */
                                        say("Wrong input sequence, resetting");
                                        input_pos = 0;
                                        input_buffer[0] = '\0';

for output dont know
