form_driver() and extended ascii

Hi all,
I have an application that uses ncurses and 'forms'. I need to port it in
Greek. I have configured FC6 to use ISO8859-7 and font iso07u-16.
Using the compose key I can insert and see Greek characters on the screen,
but only using the basic funcunctions of ncurses (es. mwprintw(), getstr()).
If I try to use a form, nothing appares in the form's fields. The problem is
that the Greek characters have values greater of 127 (for example alpha=224,
beta=225 etc.). These characters are treated as 'not printable' by
form_driver() so they are non displayed.

Hi have already searched in the mailing list archive for some response, but
I did not find anything usefull.

Is it possible to configure ncurses or forms, so that characters > 127 and <
256 are treated by form_driver() as printable characters ?

I should not like to go into the source code of 'form' for try to change the
actual behaviour of form_driver()  because I don't now anything of ncurses

Thank you for your help.
