DescriptionW343-3 (funny characters) and W343-4 (nhraykey.dll) fixes
 This patch fixes two bugs in the win32 console port related to non-US locales: W343-3 (locales using non-West-European character sets get funny characters on the screen) and W343-4 (nhraykey.dll pauses for a key when it shouldn't while performing certain tasks, such as unlocking a door).

The updated form adds the MB_USEGLYPHCHARS to the MultiByteToWideChar calls, so that certain characters in the Rogue level display correctly.

This is useful for NetHack 3.6.0 as well, but only the patch for sys/winnt/nhraykey.c should be used. This fixes W343-4. W343-3 is fixed in NetHack 3.6.0.[Quote]
