I  still  do  not  fully  understand the problem, so
please, review what I have come up with:

    On  Linux/Unix  the  FP-IDE  calculates  the
    addresses  of  the  drawing  charactes (also
    called pseudagraphics)  based  on  the  LANG
    environment variable, so for the IDE to work
    correctly, its value  must  correspond  with
    the  console mode which can be checked using
    the kbd_mode utility.

    If the reported console mode  is  UTF8  then
    the  value  of  LANG  must  be  of the form:
    ll_CC.UTF-8.  For  most  cases   en_US.UTF-8
    should work.

Now  I  don't  know for sure what happens with other
locales. From my own experiments, in this  case  the
IDE  simply  tries to get the pseudographics charac-
ters from their respective addresses as  defined  in
CP437. Is this correct?
