I applied the patch to Squeak-3.9-8.src.tar.gz .
I compiled the modified VM.
I run my image with this
	 /home/Bob/Desktop/Squeak-3.9-9/build/squeak -eventenc UTF-8

And i could not get the VM run...it listed the VM options as if the
eventenc parameter does not exist.
Ok, despite that i could set the SQUEAK_EVENTENC environment variable so
that i can setUxXwinEncoding... but i did not get any keyboard events
when my keyboard was turned to greek locale...
Also, i saw somewhere
	charCode= out[0]; /* only single-byte chars for now*/

Does this mean that the VM won't handle multibyte chars?

I'm looking into it too, thanks for the helpful advice and cooperation
