Hello Thomas,

thanks for your reply. The problem is that I'm using a Java library which uses 
the curses. So I don't know which version of the library they use.
But I started to write my own Java library which uses the libncursesw library. 
And using that everything works fine.

I don't see a source for the program.  Perhaps you overlooked this:

       The  library uses the locale which the calling program has initialized.
       That is normally done with setlocale:

             setlocale(LC_ALL, "");

       If the locale is not initialized, the library assumes  that  characters
       are  printable  as in ISO-8859-1, to work with certain legacy programs.
       You should initialize the locale and not rely on  specific  details  of
       the library when the locale has not been setup.
