Reported by Alan Post, Sep 21, 2010

open vim from the console.  (My terminal is 40x15)

type 'i' to enter insert mode.  type the right single quote 
character.  The cursor will print the single quote character and a 

I expected the single quote character to appear without a space 
immediately afterwards.  If I press ctrl-l to refresh the screen, 
the extra space disappears.

In testing, this bug also appears with the busybox version of vi.

in kernel patch :
  +keycode  41 = U+00B4           grave

the key is Unicode Character 'ACUTE ACCENT'  U+00B4.  
the "quote" is [RED ARROW] + [COMMA].

it's strange. this key works fine in "joe" "nano"

You've got this command in history.
In general :norm commands are very natural. Any vim user can easily 
compose such commands without tedious recording/playing macro. One 
of common tasks for example - delete all paragraphs containing some 
match. :g//norm dap. We here also provide you the
