Putty with utf8 on a SuSE System

When you change the default translation of your Putty to UTF-8 you can use all the advantages of that. But there is one thing witch is strange. If you call YAST you’ll see wired characters instead of the normal lines.
Of course you set „Handling of line drawing characters“ to „Use Unicode line drawing code points„. But you need to do one more little thing.
Set „Connection->Data->Terminal-type string to“ „linux“ instead of the default „xterm“ und you’ll be happy again!
