This behavior is probably limited to OS X, where iswprint() seems to do the wrong thing.

On Linux (Ubuntu 11.10) with LC_CTYPE=en_US.utf8, iswprint(246) (corresponding to the o-with-umlaut in Eol) is true, while on OS X, with LC_CTYPE=en_US.UTF-8, iswprint(246) is false. Removing the iswprint() check in text_out_to_screen() does permit printing of special characters, but that seems unwise.

I suspect that the best way to fix this in the long run is to convert r_ptr->text (and r_ptr->name) from char * to wchar_t *.
