      New issue 169 by reof...@...: Character won't map: "–" (U+2013, EN

      What steps will reproduce the problem?
      1. Define a key on your keyboard to produce "–", e.g. the Print-Key:
      xmodmap -e "keysym Print = endash"
      2. Run "vim -N -u NONE -U NONE -i NONE"
      3. :nmap – i
      4. Try to enter insert mode by pressing "–" (i.e. the remapped Print-Key
      from above).

      What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

      You should enter insert mode, instead nothing happens.

      What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?

      Please provide any additional information below.

      The problematic character is "–" (U+2013, "EN DASH").

      It does work, when the lefthandside of the mapping contains something else
      as the first character: "nmap 0– i" makes you enter insert mode when
      entering 0–.

      Mapping other unicode characters has always worked fine, e.g. "nmap ¿ i"
      makes ¿ enter insert mode.
