Amaya 8.5 & Linux: no iso8859-2 characters - more info

As I wrote in my previous email (see below) Amaya ignores some special 
(Czech, iso8859-2) characters being typed. I made an experiment: I typed 
all these characters in another applications that treats them correctly 
and copied&pasted them into Amaya. The string of characters was 
displayed but there were different characters (i.e. the special Czech 
characters were replaced by another spec. characters). When I 
copied&pasted back into the original application, the correct characters 
were shown again in it. Any suggestions what the problem with Amaya is? 
Thanks! Jakub Holy

Hello!

   I've got a problem - Amaya ignores some characters being typed typed
(e.g. racorn = 'e' with caron ('^' turned 180 degrees) above it). It
even doesn't display any character instead of them (like ? or a square)
it behaves like I haven't pressed anything. Normally in other
applications these characters work well (I've locale cs_CZ.iso8859-2).
   I thought it's because of a wrong font, so I copied
Amaya/conf/fonts.unix into ./amaya/fonts.unix and changed the last entry
to point to a M$ ttf font I've got:
---
0;#Unicode (.or ... JAPANESe)
1;1=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;2=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;3=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;4=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;
2;1=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;2=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;3=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;4=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;
3;1=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;2=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;3=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;4=/home/jakub/.amaya/GOTHIC.TTF;

  But no change. What to do, please? Thanks in advance!
