      Use iconv to get a usable (a bit outdated though) 'tutor.zh_cn.utf-8':

      iconv -f CP936 -t UTF-8 tutor.zh.euc > tutor.zh_cn.utf8

      And rename tutor.zh.utf-8 to tutor.zh_tw.utf-8 (to be more consistent).

      And then with the following patch the issue should be fixed.
      (Last change info at line 4 of tutor.vim should be updated too.)
