I'm using GPE on an SL-C3200.

I've compiled Emacs23 from CVS. It has an annoying problem on the Z under X when displaying multibyte characters, and that is that it always displays one, in this instance Kanji, and leaves the second one in a row blank, and thus alternates.

However if you move the cursor through the whole text, it all appears on screen. But if you switch to another buffer or ap, then switch back, the screen is updated again, with the characters displayed alternating.

I've found a reference to this problem on the openzaurus-ja Japanese site too. They simply refer to it as the "2-byte problem".

It's not a GPE problem though, because I had the same issue when I compiled emacs for XQt.

And it's not an Emacs23 problem, because I use the same one compiled from CVS under debian on my notebook without a prob.

I've searched the web for references to this, and how this could be fixed, however didn't find anything to lead me to the solution.

Does anyone know what this is caused by? How it could be remedied?
