[developers] Unicode font problem again (Clim)

I am trying to use Unicode characters from sections Latin Extended B and
IPA Extensions with Logon.
I have a version of Helvetica (.pcf bitmap font) that contains the
relevant glyphs, and Ican see them alright in xterm using the follwing
In LKB's file chooser I can input and display these glyphs as well, if I
set an appropriate X resource
However, for almost everything else, Logon/Clim seems intent on only
using iso8859-1 despite a utf8 locale.
As a result, I cannot see these beautiful glyphs in either parse input
and tree/chart display, although do-parse-tty appears to work fine
If I remove the iso8859-1 font from my font path (move the font files,
and then mkfontdir; xset fp rehash) xterm loads the 10646 fonts by
default (without having to set the encoding as an X resource), whereas
Logon/Clim falls back to fixed.
Now: is this a problem of Logon, or is it a clim issue, not supporting
loading of X11 unicode fonts?
Thanks in advance for your help,
