Well, the last time I looked at the code the unix vm didn't support 
multibyte key events. So you won't have any luck with setting the 
eventenc. Some time ago I submitted a patch to make this work. It 
obviously never made it into the vm. And I can't blame anyone because the 
code was bad. I have improved it a bit since than. So if there is interest 
and if somebody tells me where to send it I will submit the patch again.
