 tcsh/xterm key-bind problem

dear world.
editors such as vi and emacs all correctly
display the german umlauts. also, the
tilde and everything else is fine.
and as long as i use the bash shell,
in xterm everything is fine, too.

BUT - when using the tcsh (which
by anamnesis is my favorite...)
_within_ an xterm, i get lost of
the umlauts. what can i do?

i have set my xkdb stuff to de-latin1-nodeadkeys,
and the console fonts, too, are correctly displayed.
my distribution is the suse 5.0.

please post and e-mail in case you can
relieve me from this astonishing problem.
thanks a lot!

In comp.os.linux.misc you write:

What do you mean "get lost" ? The tcsh shell uses characters > 127  as
meta characters for functions, equivalent to typing  ESC +  (character
of same code - 128) so you can't use accented  characters  in  command
names  or  file names (not a good idea anyway). But you should be able
to use them from a terminal-mode editor started from tcsh. Can you ?
