      I use this locale:

      $ locale

      But if I do "export LANGUAGE=en_US.UTF-8"
      before starting Vim, then it works!

      So something is broken with the eo.UTF-8 locale
      somehow (using xubuntu-12.10).

      But what is strange is that the bug only affects Vim.
      Trying to paste diacritics in the shell works. It also
      works fine with other text editors in the terminal. I tried
      nano and emacs in terminal where it pasting worked
      without problem even when using the eo.UTF-8 locale.
