In 8-bit mode (e.g. LC_ALL=hu_HU) accented letters are treated as parts of
words. However, in UTF-8 mode (e.g. LC_ALL=hu_HU.UTF-8) these letters are
treated as word separators. This influences at least the following cases:

 - Alt+Backspace deletes the whole word that contains some accented letters
   in 8-bit mode, however, in UTF-8 mode it stops at accented letters.

 - Alt+B, Alt+F jump to the previous/next word in 8-bit mode, however, they
   stop at accented letters in UTF-8 mode.

 - Alt+L, Alt+U, Alt+C turns the whole accented word into lower/uppercase or
   capitals in 8-bit mode, however, stops at the first accented letters in
   UTF-8 mode.

There might be some other similar situations too.
