Several OS X users have reported that typing or pasting Unicode into BarnOwl fails with “Unable to handle keypress” errors, even though they have no such trouble with other terminal applications.

Apparently, unchecking “escape non-ASCII input” in makes it work.

Yep, that seems to work.

A user reports that this setting isn’t there in OS X 10.4. Anyway, we should figure out what keycodes the terminal is sending for Unicode by default.
