I tested it with all the combining characters, and they seem to work as intended now. Some technically "valid" sequences, like:

' \xcc\x8e \xcc\x8f'

only appear in the input bar but not in the chat window when I hit enter. Using a combining character sequence on a space is quite silly though and shouldn't ever be done in practice I don't think.

Multiple combining characters do work:


and this is a very good thing indeed. :)

Several combining characters, like 0x351, 0x35C, 0x361, 0x35D (͑͜͡͝) fail to display in Weechat. This bug is unrelated to https://savannah.nongnu.org/bugs/?36559 and is probably not caused by ncurses, as shown by this program http://scsys.co.uk:8002/214620?tx=on . This bug may affect all combining characters.
