OK, thanks for verify.

Would you mind checking the attached patch? It adds POPT_next_char()
to undo POPT_prev_char() wide character ptr positioning, and pretty much
(if it works for you) points the finger at POPT_fprintf() being  
broken somehow.

Note that POPT_fprintf() is supposed to translate from UTF-8 to
whatever locale is desired using iconv(3). GNOME wishes
to distribute only UTF-8 locale files, so popt gets to do the
final conversion using iconv(3).
