I've noticed that sometimes XChat(sience unstable, up
to 2.0)
start showing unicode symbols using 8-bit usual encoding
(I'm still using KOI8R). So I need to restart xchat.
In screenshot you can see, that moment...
But, information from server (ie other users messages)
shown correctly

    I beleive you typed some chars that cannot be converted to
    KOI8-R.
    Consider switching the UTF8!

    Oh... It's so much kinds of software that needed for
    recompile to use UTF8 as system-default encoding... Or not
    so... anyway I have no time to do that...
    But at work I have set up RH8, where Unicode is builtin from
    package.
    I don't remember that i've such problems here... but... It's
    fact that we have much more usual charset-systems than
    UTF8-based.
