    Description

      See https://root-forum.cern.ch/t/ubuntu-xenial-cling-interpreter-terminal-unicode-problem/29609/8

      Entering "Tür" at the prompt swallows the 'ü' as textinput sees each UTF-8 char separately, and doesn't know what to do with that. Even worse, UTF-8 support means that its underlying assumption "one char in the string == one char on screen" is violated.
